NEW ARRIVALS FROM GUILLEMOT
by Dixon Brooke
The Guillemots of Savigny hold a close place in our hearts, thanks to their adherence to family tradition, which is summed up best by the old label in their archives: “Bon Vin Guillemot.” Year after year, they turn out delicious Pinot Noirs infused with the heart, soul, and flavor of Burgundian wine country.
“LES GRANDS PICOTINS”
A Savigny we can enjoy already while waiting for their premiers crus to open up. Classic Burgundian Pinot nose, good grip, substantial deliciousness!
$36.00 per bottle $388.80 per case
PREMIER CRU “AUX SERPENTIÈRES”
The ageability of these Guillemot wines defies all logic and expectation. It is not at all uncommon to taste wines produced over six decades ago in their centre ville cellar, yet it is rare to find a tired bottle. As usual, Serpentières shows some spice and black pepper in the bouquet and is coiled tight like a serpent.
$45.00 per bottle $486.00 per case
2012 CORTON GRAND CRU
“LE ROGNET ET CORTON”
A regal aroma introduces the Guillemots’ latest Corton, followed by a full-bodied yet silky palate and a very long finish. Bon vin de Guillemot, indeed.
$98.00 per bottle $1,058.40 per case
