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.

We provide traditional manual culture work and care to the vine from November to July: Guyot pruning, ploughing, debudding for yield control, shot knitting and only when necessary spraying against the vine diseases. The time and care we give to the vine is key to wine quality.

First steps include crushing and fermentation in French oak barrels (1/3) and stainless steel tank (2/3). 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 bottling preparation.
