Domaine Jean-Michel Guillon
- first of the 2011 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.
He continues to expand and in 2011 has added the Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux and a new Cote de Nuits to the portfolio.
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 2010 and sure to be once again in 2011.
At this stage there are no tasting notes for the 2011's. However, many of you will be familiar with the Guillon style which Burghound describes as "...modern burgundies that retain a clear sense of style and grace." If you get in early you have first choice of the top cuvees.
All of the wines are offered at Pre Arrival Prices which will save you 15% on the landed prices. We offer 16 different wines at Pre Arrival Prices starting at just $32.50.
2011 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
Pre Arrival Price $197.95
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 note on the 2010: This is also intensely earthy with a plethora of red berry fruit aromas that include notes of plum, cassis and black cherry liqueur also exhibit copious amounts of that classic sauvage character of a fine Mazis. The impressively concentrated and overtly muscular big-bodied flavors are shaped by very firm but buried tannins and superb length on the balanced, austere and hugely long finish. This is a stunner of a wine built for the long haul. 93-95 Points. Drink: 2025+
