Domaine Antonin Guyon estate is among the most prestigious in Burgundy. It stretches almost all along the Côte d’Or. Dominique Guyon and his brother Michel govern the business that their father Antonin began back in the 60s.
The Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru vineyards straddle the communes of Pernard Vergellesses and Aloxe-Corton and enjoy a south westerly exposure. The soil here is white marl, and almost pure limestone. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried to the winery in small boxes, where they are sorted. Fermentation is carried out at 64-68°F in oak casks. Lees are stirred in the casks twice a week. Wines are aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months. Magnificently concentrated, a very fine nose with aromas of acacias, honeysuckle blossoms and nuts. Very pure and powerful with superb depth that will age up to 10 years. Serve with shellfish, lobster, foie gras and poultry dishes in creamy sauces.
Decanter 92 points - "Luminous lime nose. Rich and spicy palate with energy and lift, linear and racy zesty acidity and classic Corton austerity. Long and lively. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030."
