Pierre Guillemot is one of the classic producers in Burgundy, making wines in an old-school style with whole cluster grapes and not a lot of new wood. Global warming has made the wines here even better, letting them get a little riper and giving them more fruit and depth. We tasted through the lineup of the 2020 and really liked the 1er Jarrons. This is one of his smallest premier cru production-wise but also one of his most interesting. There are aromas of red and blue fruits, sandalwood, spice, liquid minerals, and violets. The palate is dense with loads of fruit but with a good cut and acidity. The finish is long, palate-staining, yet approachable, but better in 3 to 5 years. Considering the Domaine's track record, this wine should age much longer. We tasted their 1990 Bourgogne Rouge a couple of years ago, which was a very ripe and dense vintage as well, and it was still drinking great. This is an excellent buy from an impressive under-the-radar Domaine; don't miss it!
Jasper Morris MW (Inside Burgundy) 90-93 pts! "Greater density of purple but still balanced. This is complete right across the palate in a way that Narbontons did not quite achieve, more structure, a fine acid balance, and everything in harmony here at a high level. Impressive intensity without ever deviating from a natural balance. Still raspberry in predominance, perhaps alpine strawberries too"
