antonin guyon pernand vergelesses

Many 2005’s are a shadow of where they were 6 months ago, so despite not all being in bottle yet, it’s lucky that some are now filtering through:
2006 Antonin Guyon, Pernand Vergelessestry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is reasonably wide but with a good depth of powdery cherry fruit. In the mouth there’s a really super balance between the sweet, ripe fruit and the flowing acidity, so much so that tannin is an after-thought. The finish is narrow but sneakily long and shows a faint creaminess. A lovely wine and excellent value.
Rebuy – Yes

    Hi Bill,

    Alerted by your recommendations i just picked up some 2006 wines at the domaine (Beaune, C-M clos du village, G_C La Justice and Savigny). The Beaune is very similar to your description of the P-V, the C-M is already simply delicious, with excellent balance. Thanks!

    I noticed some significant increases in en primeur pricing
    (e.g. 2007 drouhin laroze Bonnes Mares 20% up compared to 2006, Potel Bonnes Mares even more)… Any idea whether this is driven by supply or demand?

    Hi Paul,
    The Chambolle Clos du Village can be a beauty – better than an ‘average’ 1er in my experience – out of interest how much did you pay per bottle? I think I paid €22 per bottle hors tax (I imported into Switzerland). In fact the 05 was so delicious I feel somehow pleased that I still have 9 left!

    Re pricing – those buying grapes on contract did pay close to 20% more from 2005 to 2007 – though this is not the same as a 20% at the door increase! Those who own their vines had no such increase, but I suppose we are all paying much more for fuel etc…

    I paid the 2006 en primeur price of €25 TTC ex domaine. I know now i bought too few, so i’ll take my chances with the 2007.
    BTW is there a story behind the different domaines on Guyon’s labels?

    As far as nice C-M is concerned, you might want to check out Domaine des Beaumonts. Easiest available at the caveau des vignerons in Morey-S-D (when in the neighbourhood ;-))….

    Not too bad. Re different domaines, it was imply explained to me that it was the most tax efficient(!), though I assume it probably has slightly different ownership within the family etc.

    Will look out for Domaine des Beaumonts – perhaps an Inconnu? 🙂

    Oh well, i shouldn’t have mentioned it 😉
    but then again, it’s an inconnu with coup de coeur in Guide Hachette and favorable reviews in Bourgogne Aujourdhui (FWIW ;-))
