Domaine Pierre Guillemot -- 2014s Tasted from Bottle and Tank (Savigny-les-Beaune)

Harvesting here began on 23 September. In 2014, there was a cold pre-fermentation maceration of ten days. There was not a lot of damage from hail in 2014, although it varied from one vineyard to the next. The wines below were tasted from stainless steel tanks where they were awaiting subsequent bottling (except for the one wine in bottle).

Guillemot is a producer of outstanding consistency and value. If you don’t already know the wines, they are well worth your seeking them out. (Continue reading here.)
