Domaine Jean Guiton
Jean Guiton founded the Domaine in 1975 and his son, Guillaume, joined the family business in 1998. Today, they produce wines on the most beautiful land of la Côte de Beaune, especially in Pommard, Volnay, Beaune Savigny, Ladoix Serrigny et Aloxe-Corton. The Guiton family crafts wines of real charm, finesse and purity. It is not surprising that some of his outputs are the best selling wines across the top tables of London restaurants. Guillaume Guiton called 2017 a charming vintage, (not to be confused with lightweight or insubstantial though) and well timed as the wines are more accessible than the intensely concentrated 2016s. He began the harvest on 6th September, after a summer that was sunny but without the heat spikes of the previous two vintages. He pointed to the wines being characterised by an abundance of fresh aromas and ripe, elegant tannins, with the fruit profile of 2007 but greater aromatic complexity. Guiton always offers exceptional value (previously when offered in cases of 12 bottles, many assumed the price was for 6!) and in 2017 we found his middle tier wines to be our favourites so have concentrated on them for our offer although can also get hold of his Pommard and Volnay for past fans.
