2017 Vintage- Here’s an idea for a study in terroir: invite a couple friends, start the barbecue, and open a bottle of Serpentières alongside a bottle of Jarrons. The two vineyards face each other on opposite sides of the road from Beaune to Savigny. The first, south-facing on limestone-clay marl, has everything in its favor to produce a charming, delicate, beautiful wine—and so it does. The second, Les Jarrons, with sandy, dry soil, and direct sun only in the morning, has everything to test the grower’s savoir faire. The Guillemot interpretation gives a concentrated, structured wine with notable intensity, at no cost to the signature charm that can be found in every one of this producer’s cuvées. We import 900 of the 1,200 bottles they produce each year—as much as we can get, which speaks for itself.
