Uncovering under-the-radar Burgundy is one of life’s great pleasures. Jean-Pierre Guyon spends so much time in his organic vineyards that he has no time for self-promotion. As a result, you just have to know about his wines. But these hugely impressive wines will not remain a secret for long, especially since Wine Advocate noted that they “recommend the wines to readers in the strongest possible terms”. Be one of the first to get onboard with this super producer.  Here we have a lovely purity of fruit with fresh red cherry, really well defined. It has a fresh crunchy character, good grip and a very juicy personality.

Chorey-Les-Beaune is one of the more humble red wine appellations on the Côte D'Or, normally producing simple, light red wine for drinking young. But the best vineyards, when managed by the best vignerons, can produce wine to rival much grander names.  Les Bons Ores is a vineyard right on the border of Aloxe Corton and this is from a patch of old vines, some up to 100 years old.  Here we have Pinot Noir fermented partly as whole bunches, matured in one year old oak barrels for around 12 months.
Domaine Guyon are based in Vosne-Romanée. Jean-Pierre Guyon has farmed organically since 2006, certified from 2012. He has vines in several villages outside Vosne, including Gevrey, Vougeot, Savigny and Chorey.

2016 was a vintage that was devastated by spring frosts, but what remained of the reds is of the highest quality, often surpassing the 2015's, although in more elegant style that will appeal to purists and lovers of classic Burgundy. The vast majority of Jean-Pierre Guyon’s vines in Chorey-les-Beaune are over 100 years old. In 2016 they produced a dark and concentrated brew of wild strawberries, hedgerow blackberries, black cherry and cinnamon-spiced Mexican dark chocolate. Succulent and juicy, but with refreshing acidity and the gentle lift of rose petals, this is a charmer that feels almost Vosne-Romanée in style (although far from it in price).
