Tremendous 2010 Burgundies from Domaine Olivier Guyot. 2009 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Eclat Calcaires

Guyot 2010 Header

The Guyots are one of the oldest families in Marsannay-la-Côte. Today they still plough by horse and practice biodynamic cultivation methods

 

The founder, Louis Guyot was a small farmer/wine-grower with many animals, particularly carthorses which he used to help in the vineyards and at harvest time.

 

Today the domaine is managed by Olivier Guyot who tends for the 15 hectares spread across Marsannay, Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin and Morey-St-Denis. And yes, the vineyards are ploughed by Indigo the cart horse (in the photo above), just as his ancestors did.

 

I first tasted the wines of Domaine Guyot at the Grands Jours de Bourgogne in March this year. I was very impressed with the purity, race and power the wines displayed. So I arranged the visit the domaine the following week where I was shown the full range of 2010 reds. They were even more impressive than my first sip.

 

Guyot is a name that has slipped under the radar. He is not reviewed by Burghound or Tanzer. But I can assure you that the wines are terrific. They are deep and intense but true to their terroir. We are delighted to include this discovery in our portfolio.

  

Guyot Fuees bottleChambolle-Musigny 

1er Cru Les Fuees

Normally $142.95

Pre Arrival Price $121.50

 

It is no secret that I am a big fan of Les Fuees. For me it captures the essence of Chambolle-Musigny. The 2010 has seen 70% new oak and it carries with aplomb.

 

The 2010 Fuees is more spicy than the Vieilles Vignes. Classic perfumed Chambolle nose of black and red fruits with minerals and spice. A touch of complexing kirsch character that adds depth to the wine. The wine has lovely silky mouthfeel and a long, and lovely finish. This is extremely stylish. Classic! A knockout wine!

  

Guyot Roche bottleClos de la Roche Grand Cru

Normally $235.00

Pre Arrival Price $199.95

 

Classic Clos de la Roche nose of dark berries and plums with minerals and a touch of earth. Concentrated and deep, dark flavours with plenty of extract before a seriously long, stylish finish. Powerful and brooding and an exceptional example of what this Grand Cru vineyard can produce. It doesn't come much better!

 Ogier Eclats Calcaires bottle

Wines we are enjoying...

2009 Ogier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Eclats Calcaires

In Stock $69.95

 

I enjoy Chateauneuf when it is not too powerful. I appreciate the savoury elements and the lightness that Grenache displays when it is not over-ripe.

 

I greatly enjoyed a bottle of the 2009 Ogier Eclats Calcaires over the weekend.

 

The wine is made from grapes grown only on limestone soils and this contributes significantly to the character and freshness of this cuvee.

 

The style is reminiscent of the old Chateau Rayas with raspberry, anise, smoke and minerals. As the Rhone Report says "The minerality is what sets it apart". It is not a heavy-weight by any means and is about as Burgundian as Chateauneuf gets.

 

This is a great wine for those who love Chateauneuf-du-Pape the way it used to be made.

 

Only a couple of cases available.
