It is in Chambolle-Musigny, a charming village in Burgundy, nestled mid-slope in the heart of the Côte de Nuits, between Morey-Saint-Denis and Vougeot, that we meet Domaine AMIOT-SERVELLE.
An appellation with musical syllables imbued with sweetness and finesse, one of the most “feminine” wines of the Côte de Nuits.
The Domaine started with Clément Tachot in 1920s. Cécile, his daughter, and Jean Servelle, his son-in-law, took over from him in the 1950s and created the Domaine Servelle-TACHOT. In 1980, Christian Amiot, whose father, Pierre Amiot, was a vine-grower in the neighboring village of Morey-Saint-Denis, came to work on the estate with his wife, Elisabeth Servelle.
In 1989, Christian and Elisabeth Amiot-Servelle took over the activity: the Domaine AMIOT-SERVELLE came into being.
Christian and Elisabeth have three children: Prune, Violette and Antoine.
Violette chose music and is an artist-teacher of percussion at the regional academy of music.
As to Prune, she obtained her diploma in oenology (DNO) in 2004. Then, after a period of training experience and working for various vineyard-owners both in France and abroad, she came back to the family estate in May 2011. Antoine joined her bit later after graduation of Dijon Business School.
Domaine has excellent plots of Les Amoureuses, rare Grand Cru Clos St. Denis and impressive variety of Chambolle’s 1er Crus. Great wines!
