Domaine Jean Guiton Bourgogne
Pinot Noir 2018
Guillaume Guiton is a deeply dedicated vigneron who exhibits painstaking attention to his craft. Sandy clay and limestone soil create the basis of his terroir-focused methods, which disavow the use of pesticides and herbicides. The grapes are harvested, sorted, and destemmed by hand before fermentation in concrete with native yeast. Guiton is passionate about barrels, carefully selecting and strictly limiting their age and usage. The wines mature in French oak for 9 months before being bottled, where they mature for a further 3 months before release. The results are quite powerful.
