Dominique Guyon and his brother Michel control the business that was started by their father Antonin in the 1960s. Antonin was relatively mature when he set out on his vine-owning journey – 55 – buying his first parcels in Gevrey and Meursault. The biggest single addition to the family’s holdings came in 1970 after Dominique had patiently accumulated hundreds of small parcels from almost 80 different Hautes Côtes de Nuits growers in Meuilley into a single, 22-hectare block of south-facing vines.
Lovely, fine, glossy black-cherry fruit and an earthy, leathery note too. This wine encapsulates the magic of Burgundy's earthy personality.
