Domaine Antonin Guyon
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. Started in the 1960s by Antonin Guyon with parcels of land in Gevrey and Meursault, the domaine is controlled and operated today by Antonin’s sons, Dominique and Michel. This huge 47 hectare property now produces wines of impeccable quality from 15 different appellations, including some of the most renowned villages of the region. It is also a firm favorite of wine lovers and connoisseurs worldwide, particular for its exceptional range of Premier and Grands Crus.
In the sixties, Antonin Guyon then aged 55, buys plots of vineyard in a range of appellations covering the two hills from Gevrey-Chambertin to Meursault. After great efforts, his son Dominique manages to bring together in 1970 some 350 plots belonging to almost 80 different owners from the commune of Meuilley in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits: 54 acres facing south, an excellent soil finishing off the family range.
Today, in their Savigny-lès-Beaune cellars, the two brothers look after the winemaking of more than fifteen different appellations containing an exceptional range of Premier and Grand Crus. The vineyard covers 0.40 hectare (0.98 acres) on south facing slopes, well-known for the quality of its wines.
The two brothers, Michel and Dominique, oversee this huge estate of 119 acres and handle together the administration and sales functions. Alongside them is Vincent Nicot, their vineyard manager, and Dominique the cellar master who conducts the vinification.
