Winemaker Notes

Guillaume Guiton

Jean GUITON

by Guillaume Guiton
What a pleasure it has been to follow this wine from barrel to bottle. On our first visit, Guillaume offered tastes of this from 3 different barrels prior to blending. If you don’t like this wine, then you don’t like Burgundy. It is a big, sexy glass of Pinot Noir. It will be hard to keep our hands off these given the vibrant and luscious young fruit, but it will develop more depth and complexity over the next five years plus.
