Maison Henri de Villamont are headquartered in an impressive, rather individual looking building just outside the centre of Savigny-lès-Beaune.

A legend throughout the entire Côte-d'Or, Henri de Villamont can be easily spotted from miles around due to its famous "Guettes Tower" and beautiful manor house, which has drawn wine lovers on a Burgundy pilgrimage for many decades. Located in the heart of one of the region's prettiest villages, Savigny les Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a magical place, surrounded by high walls and scores of Premier Cru vineyards. 

The domaine's buildings were built between 1880 and 1888 for Léonce Bocquet (1839-1913). Bocquet was one of the most important producers of his generation. He was one of the six negociants who purchased all the parcels of Clos Vougeot when Jules Ouvrard sold off the monopole after 1861. In 1889 Bocquet purchased the Chateau de Clos Vougeot - at the time in ruins - no-doubt the main reason Bocquet chose to ship his grapes to his winery in Savigny.

In 1969, the owners added the famous Dr.Arthur Barolet cellar to their purchases. The majority of this 300,000 bottle cache was soon sold through auction, though a few bottles going as far back as 1911 remain in the wine library of Henri de Villamont. 

Of the domaine's 10 hectares of vines, close to 6.5 hectares are centred on Savigny-lès-Beaune; two hectares are accounted for by their Savigny Clos des Guettes, which looks down on the winery and the domaine's 'Manor house'.

To day we present three vintages of this historic wine at wonderful prices. You can save 30% on the 2008, 2012 and 2013 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Guettes.

Villamont Guettes Label
The days of Premier Cru Red Burgundy from top vintages at under $60 a bottle are all but gone. The run of small crops has necessitated substantial prices increases across the board in recent years.

This walled vineyard in Savigny produces some of the commune's best reds. They are spicy with lifted fruit, a touch of earth, all coming together with supple tannins. Savigny is well respected amongst Burgundy lovers for its immediate appeal coupled with the ability to age and this wine is no exception.

And one should not forget the reasonable prices. Choose from 2008, 2012 and 2013 - they're all on Special less 30%.
