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. Les Pucelles is one of the best known and most famous of Puligny’s 1er Crus, just adjacent to the Grand Crus of Batard and Bienvenue Batard Montrachet. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.
Ethereal aromas of pear, apple, lime and mixed with notes of mushroom and earth. There is an explosion of fullness on the palate with elements of honeysuckle and herbs. The finish is cool, precise, focused and very long.
Pairs well with lobster, seafood in cream sauces, chicken with wild mushrooms or soft cheeses.
Guyon produces only three barrels (75 cases) of this exquisite wine from their tiny parcel of land!
