HOT PROPERTY! Be quick if you wish to secure some of Guillon's 2013 Red Burgundies
Domaine Jean-Michel Guillon was established in 1980. Jean-Michel was in aeronautics and when he caught the wine bug he did so big-time! In the ensuing years the domaine, which started from scratch, has grown to an impressive 13 hectares and features a range of vineyards mostly in Gevrey-Chambertin. These include a lovely range of Gevrey Premier Crus and the Grand Crus Mazis-Chambertin and Clos Vougeot.
This is a great place to explore the terroirs of Gevrey-Chambertin as Jean-Michel now has five different Premier Crus! And don't forget the majestic Mazis-Chambertin, a big favourite in past vintages.
We are delighted to present the 2013's from Domaine Guillon. Our 2013 allocation is small. For some cuvees we have just 12 bottles to offer. The good news is that prices are virtually identical to the 2012's - which is very positive in today's Burgundy market.
The Mazis-Chambertin is always a stunner of a wine and the 2013 is no exception. See below for Burghound's notes. To view the full range click here.
2013 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
Pre Arrival Price $292.95
Adjoining Chambertin Clos de Beze, Mazis-Chambertin produces wines with the similar exciting, wild, slightly exotic character of its neighbour. Guillon owns 0.18 ha which is not a lot! This wine is always limited so get in quick if you would like some.
Burghound: (from a .18 ha parcel of 20+ year old vines and fermented like the Clos de Vougeot). A pungent nose of strong reduction and wood toast flatten the underlying fruit. This is also a big, powerful and intense effort with excellent mid-palate concentration and plenty of palate coating dry extract that also serves to buffer the extraordinarily firm finish that delivers superb length. Like several of these 2013s this is an old school style of Mazis and it is pointless to buy this unless you have the determination to allow it have at least 10 years of cellaring and it will need every bit of 20 to fully mature. As such this will not be for everyone but it will be a treat for those who have the resolve to wait. 92-94 Points.
