SKU: 1163 / B182 / P6ARegular price $91.95
In the complex landscape of Burgundy there is both a wealth of centuries-old domaines and an exciting crop of new-wave vignerons gaining lots of attention. In the middle ground, there lies some often overlooked wineries with great holdings who produce compelling wines. Antonin Guyon started his winery in the 1960's while he was in the his 50's with key vineyard parcels in Meursault and Gevrey-Chambertin. Over time, his son Dominique added great variety to the holdings with thoughtful acquisitions of holdings throughout the entire Côte d'Or.
This offering of 'Les Cras' comes from prime Chambolle-Musigny vineyards just below the 1er Cru of the same name, known for it's combination of limestone-based and iron-rich clay. The wine combines a touch of power with the open, elegant character Chambolle-Musigny is known for rounded with a careful incorporation of new, French oak. True to the style of many reds from Burgundy's 2014 vintage, this 'Les Cras' is charming with an expressive forwardness.
