About the Producer
Antonin Guyon started buying vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin and Meursault in the 1960s. A decade later, his son Dominique added 350 plots in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits. Today, Dominique and his daughter Hombeline, the fifth generation of the family, look after a domaine covering more than fifteen different appellations. As William Kelly writes, ‘it is a mystery how this 48-hectare estate….blessed with grand appellations continues to fly somewhat under the radar’. Certified organic since 2018, vinification occurs in open-top oak vats and new oak is kept to a minimum to allow the terroir to shine through. The results, according to Robert Parker speak for themselves. Complex, charming and elegant, these classic wines merit serious attention.
