Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its garnet color offers an open and bouqueté nose, on notes of cherry blossom and a touch of black pepper. On the palate, this wine presents a supple and velvety attack, with a nice character on the red fruits. Powerful and elegant finish.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation

  • Domaine Guyon

    Founded by Antonin Guyon in the 1960’s by a successive purchase of plots extending from Gevrey-Chambertin to Meursault, it’s nowadays its son Dominique Guyon that runs the domain.

     

    • Terroir: The Corton is the only red Grand Cru of the Côte de Beaune. The plots of 85 hectares of Corton Bressandes Grand Cru are on a soil made of clay and limestone.
       
    • Viticulture: A great care is given to the vines with complete labors. Harvests are done manually and transported in little boxes.
       
    • Wine-making: Wines are made in oak barrels with controlled temperatures. The method of pigeage is used: it consists in sinking and mixing the marc at the top of the tank with the must that is at the bottom. The wine ages in oak barrels during 18 months whose 50% are new.
