Domaine S.C. Guillard is a small Burgundy winery led with severe and pure craftsmanship by vigneron Michel Guillard. We are in the Cote de Nuits, in the famous village of Gevrey-Chambertin, where back in 1913 Michel's grandmother Jeanne Lyonnet bought the first vines with the money she saved working as a maid while her husband Auguste was at war. In 1937, she took over the first Premier Cru parcel, Les Corbeaux, together with her husband, an employee at large Domaine de Gevrey. In 1979, Michel and his sister Odette took over the reins of the estate after their parents had run it for two decades, during which they expanded the vineyard collection.

The vineyard area available to the S.C. Guillard cellar amounts to no more than 5 hectares, exclusively dedicated to the main grape variety of the Cote de Nuits: Pinot Noir. The vines, some of which are centuries old, stand on soils composed mainly of red clay and limestone and are located at about 300 metres above sea level. In the vineyard, Michel applies sustainable agronomic operations aimed at favouring the quality of the grapes in spite of quantity, keeping yields low through rational pruning techniques. The oenological approach adopted by the winemaker is totally traditionalist, with both the alcoholic fermentation and the subsequent ageing phase taking place in oak barrels of several passages, with a perfectly measured use of wood associated with never invasive interventions.

S.C. Guillard's interpretations, striking in their complexity and depth of expression, are able to express the most intimate essence of the prized Gevrey-Chambertin terroir. Fruit, crispness and structure are just some of the attributes that describe Michel Guillard's Pinot Noirs. Among his labels, the Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 'Les Corbeaux' deserves special mention, made from grapes of the cru of the same name that Michel's grandmother bought in the 1930s.
