2005 Amiot Guy, Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes (Rouge)Jul. 2008
For the vintage it’s a modestly coloured medium, medium-plus cherry red. The nose has some depth, and pulls you in with faint toasted bread and bouquet garni. Intense, with slightly grainy tannin and with good understated acidity followed by another dimension of dark fruit and a little oak on the mid-palate. The finish is savoury with a long undertow of creamy dark fruit. If not totally sophisticated it balances with real personality. This is a wine that delivers on both personality and value. It’s really rather good.
2004 Amiot Guy, Chassagne-Montrachet Les VergersJul. 2006
Medium-pale yellow. The nose is broad and deep, a faint backgound of cream and bread, but no overt oak. Lovely intense and complex palate of rippling acidity and citrussy fruit – lovely extension of width on the mid-palate before slowly dying into the finish. Super and from such a youngster – this is a definite re-buy!
1997 Amiot Guy, Chassagne-Montrachet Clos Saint JeanNov. 2005
Medium-minus ruby-red colour. Fresh nose that’s surprisingly tight for the vintage. Much more depth than the nose would suggest, clean, sweet and ripe flavours that open out on the mid-palate before fading into a nice medium-length finish that shows a lovely redcurrant note. Hard to fault, but it’s only the finish that holds the interest.
2001 Amiot Guy, Chassagne-Montrachet ChampgainsMar. 2003
Pale yellow. Understated nose. The palate is more mineral. Good acidity and reasonable length. Good
2001 Amiot Guy, Chassagne-Montrachet Les MacharellesMar. 2003
Pale yellow. More melony nose than the previous ‘Morgeot’. Palate is less full, but good fruit, good acidity and very long. This is good wine.

Deeper cherry colour. Nose is clean,but in the background a little kerosine(?) Nice fruit with medium tannins and good acidity. Quite persistent. Good.
