2007 Amiot Guy et Fils Montrachet Grand Cru - 750ml
Brand: Amiot Guy et Fils
Amiot Guy’s Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes (Old Vines) 2007 is classic white Burgundy – a wine of grace, precision, and subtlety that bears little resemblance to California Chardonnay. In fact, a wholly different approach is taken in Burgundy towards Chardonnay, where the best producers like Amiot Guy strive to accentuate the ultimate attributes of Chardonnay: charm, elegance, and inherent drinkability. Rather than overlay the exemplary mineral rich flavors of Chassagne-Montrachet or obscure the appellation’s unique terroir with copious quantities of new oak, as is often the case with New World Chardonnays, Guy Amiot captures the complexity as well as the soft, sophisticated, eminent drinkability of Chardonnay in his 2007 Vieilles Vignes offering. The brilliant 2007 Amiot Guy Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes sports a beguiling, golden-hued robe that radiates the glow of morning sunshine. A quintessential Chassagne-Montrachet, Guy Amiot’s 2007 Vieilles Vignes is an outstanding introduction to the wines of Chassagne-Montrachet, Chardonnay’s most famous village. Along with a brilliant robe, the medium-bodied Amiot Guy Vieilles Vignes possesses a mineral rich nose and a wealth of soft, seductive flavors. A cachet of flowers, minerals, and oriental spices well up from the center of this wine and frame the finish of this elegant concoction. Although still in the fresh bloom of youth, the 2007 Amiot Guy Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes has several years of favorable evolution ahead of it; it should reach its ultimate plateau of perfection in 2010 and hold there for several years.
