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.

The name "Les Demoiselles” is a reminder of two former owners, Adèle and Julie Voillot, daughters of a former military general in Beaune at the beginning of the 19th century, who lived as spinsters. This pretty name is reserved only for the southern part of the plot known as "Les Caillerets". It is also used in addition to the appellation "Chevalier-Montrachet" for the wines produced from the plot of "Chevalier Grand cru" located just on top of the slope.

First steps include crushing and fermentation in French oak barrels (1/3 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 preparation.

Food pairing

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