Domaine Guillon was founded in 1980. He was part of the movement that re-defined Burgundy in the early 1980s with Rousseau, Seysses (Dujac), and Mugnier. He is a avowed fan of new oak and the rich, seamless style which came to epitomize the best of Burgundy in the last part of the 20th century.
It boggles my mind no one knows about Domaine Guillon in the U.S. All of Jean-Michel Guillon’s contemporaries are famous and their wines nearly impossible to obtain. In terms of quality, style, and pedigree, Guillon deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as Dujac, Rousseau, and Comte de Vogue.
Rich, almost decadent, wines from a lesser-known contemporary of Rousseau, Mugnier, and Seyess.
