ABOUT THE WINE
Domaine Antonin Guyon is one of the most prestigious estates in the Côte d’Or, as well as one of the largest family-owned wineries in the region. It was started in the 1960s by Antonin Guyon with parcels of land in Gevrey and Meursault. The Guyon Les Charmes Dessus is the upper part of the Les Charmes 1er Cru, high on the slopes just below 1er Cru Perrieres. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. Fermentation is carried out in oak casks between 64–68°F. Lees are stirred twice a week. The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new barrels.

TASTING NOTES
A lovely golden green color. Aromas of honey and very rich in the mouth, with hints of almond. Excellent depth, focus and precision. This wine can be enjoyed now, or it can also be aged for up to 10 years.

FOOD PAIRING
A perfect companion to fish or poultry in creamy sauces.
