Catch a Rising Star! Domaine Olivier Guyot 2010 Burgundies

Guyot 2 Header

We discovered Domaine Olivier Guyot last year. This Rising Star is now in all the major French Guides...

 

I first tasted the wines of Domaine Guyot at the Grands Jours de Bourgogne in March last year. I was very impressed with the purity, race and power the wines displayed. 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.

  

So it is with pleasure I see that Bettanne and Desseauve's Le Guide des Vins de France 2013, Les Guide Hachette des Vins 2013 and Les Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 2013 (the three major French Guides) all list Domaine Olivier Guyot. At this stage he may have slipped under the English-speaking critic's radar but it is just a matter of time. He is a Rising Star!

 

What I like about Guyot's wines is the intensity, perfume and expression of terroir. The domaine is just 15 hectares in size with some fine vineyards in several communes including the Grand Crus Clos-de-la-Roche and Clos St-Denis. 

 

These are seriously good wines and coming from the 2010 vintage they are particularly special. 

 

Two wines to contemplate...

  

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!
