Domaine Pierre Guillemot Bourgogne Rouge, Burgundy 2017
VINTAGE : 2017
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : France, Burgundy
VARIETAL : Pinot Noir
The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny’s rustic character. But do not be fooled into thinking that this means they lack aging potential; the Guillemots are very proud of their old wines and thankfully have the foresight to set aside a good supply and follow their wines’ development over the years. We challenge anyone to find a better deal on Burgundies that are built to last like these!
Characterized by a light hue, structure balanced by lift, and bright red berries and spice, the Guillemots’ signature style extends throughout the lineup all the way to the Bourgogne rouge. If there were enough of this beauty to go around, I’d enjoy a bottle of it weekly. Not to miss!
