Amiot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Combottes 2020
With the 2020 vintage, the Domaine Pierre Amiot has become the Domaine Amiot et Fils. Jean-Louis’s brother Didier has gone off on his own, and son Léon has joined Jean-Louis and Chantal in the business. The 2020 vintage was the third year in a row of unusually hot weather, resulting in a harvest that began in August for the first time in Jean-Louis’s long career.
Combottes is a near-Grand Cru in more ways than one. First, it is surrounded by Grand Cru vineyards: Clos de la Roche, Latricieres-Chambertin and Charmes-Chambertin. More importantly, it offers concentration and intensity that elevates it into the Grand Cru neighborhood. Burghound praised its “floral-suffused aromas of various dark berries, earth, and hints of the sauvage.”
