In 1991, Jean-Pierre Guyon took over the family business, which had previously been run by his father since 1953 and by his grandfather since 1938. Subsequently, his brother Michel joined him. Since 2015, Jean-Pierre and his wife Isabelle have taken over the reins of the company. The property has grown to cover 9 hectares of land following the purchase of new parcels in both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. Since 2012, the company has been certified organic and some biodynamic techniques are used, such as the use of the lunar calendar for work in the vineyard and for bottling. Jean-Pierre’s perfectionism and his search for the essence of the terroir are reflected in the cellar, where every decision is made with attention to the potential of the wine, the particle, the yield and the characteristics of the appellation and vintage, with the aim of preserving the peculiarities of the vintage and of the corresponding terroir.
Pinot noir 100%
In Burgundy, the Pinot Noir winemaking process follows a strict disciplinary to enhance the characteristics of the grape. The grapes are harvested manually, with selection in the vineyard, followed by pressing and fermentation in oak vats for about 10-15 days. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for aging and malolactic fermentation, which lasts an average of 12 to 18 months. During this period, the wine is tasted to monitor its development. After aging in the bottle, the wine is ready for marketing.
Intense ruby colour. In the bouquet, you can perceive fragrances of ripe red fruit, such as cherries and raspberries, accompanied by aromatic, mineral and earthy nuances. On the palate, the tannins manifest themselves in a decisive but velvety way, creating a soft texture that delicately envelops the palate. The structure is harmonious and well proportioned, with a prolonged persistence of fruity and spicy flavours.
It lends itself perfectly to accompany red meats, mature cheeses and mushroom-based dishes.
