Our oenologists' opinion
This intense garnet-colored wine has bright red highlights. At tasting, this wine is enveloping. Its attack, greedy, unveils a touch of cocoa and woody and roasted notes. Aromas of ripe cherries soften the whole. The finish is tasteful, well-balanced with a great tension.
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.

Dominique Guyon did the impossible to increase the size of his vineyards. By negotiating with over 80 owners, he was able to gather 350 plots!
Domain and appellation
Established in the 60’s by Antonin Guyon through successive plots’ purchase, the domain belongs today to his son Dominique Guyon.
- Terroir: The 48 hectares domain lays on clay-limestone soils.
- Viticulture: Much care is given to the vines with full plowing. The harvests are hand-picked and the grapes carefully carried to the vat room in small crates.
- Vinification: The unique goal is to let the wines express their terroirs. Fermented in wooden tanks, the wine ages in oak barrels.
