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.
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. We need to finalize our order so if you wish to secure some of these serious wines please act quickly.
The Mazis-Chambertin is always a stunner of a wine and the 2011 is no exception. See below for Burghound's notes. To view the full range click here.
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: This is an extraordinarily ripe 2011 with notes of menthol, dried plum, spice, cassis and sauvage nuances. Despite the heightened ripeness levels there is still good energy to the tension-filled and overtly powerful flavors that possess much finer tannins compared to those of the Clos de Vougeot. This is really quite classy and while it's hugely long and altogether serious, it is notably less austere. Note however that like its grand cru stable mate, this will require plenty of bottle age. 92-95 Points. Drink: 2018+
