Since 1920, generation after generation, the Amiot family have plunged their roots in the soil and terroir of Chassagne-Montrachet. Arsène and Flavie Amiot, founders of the estate, initiated a wine vocation that has reached the 4th generation represented today by their great grand sons, Thierry and Fabrice. Guy, their father, who had given a new start to the family business since 1985, can be satisfied by the immortalization of the family tradition.Thanks to the maintenance of the business by the family sons who follow one another at the head of the Domaine, the vineyards have remained owned by the family. This allows a more traditional viticulture, free from any speculative spirit.

Our Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Les Caillerets is an iconic wine. Neighbouring our own house, this plot was purchased when the Domaine was founded by Arsène Amiot. Partly replanted 30 years ago, it still incarnates our Chassagne white wines thanks to a great location ("terroir"): high in the Chassagne hill, on a dominantly limestony soil, facing the South-East.

First steps include crushing and fermentation in French oak barrels (30% new) Then comes bâtonnage and natural malolactic fermentation at cellar temperature (13 to 14° C).

After 12 months of ageing, the wine is pumped back to one tank for 6 more months before bottling.

Food pairing

A great match for roastechicken with an almond and thyme crust with chargrilled cauliflower or bouillabaisse with fresh French bread and butter.
