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.
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 past vintages.
All of the wines are offered at Pre Arrival Prices which will save you 15% on the landed prices. We offer 17 different wines at Pre Arrival Prices starting at just $39.95.
The Mazis-Chambertin is always a stunner of a wine and the 2012 is no exception. See below for Burghound's notes. To view the full range click here.
2012 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
Pre Arrival Price $280.50
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: There is plenty of wood to the pungently reduced nose where none of the underlying fruit elements are visible. The highly energetic medium weight plus flavors brim with both dry extract and mineral elements before terminating in a driving, even explosive finish that displays excellent complexity as well as terrific persistence. This is impressive though note that this will require plenty of cellar time. 92-92 Points.
