Even for the most avid wine lover, Burgundy can sometimes be a confounding puzzle. Not only is its relatively small swath of vineyards divided into different communes and different "crus", but these individual sites may often have many owners. The search for quality in any one year involves at least two factors: the vineyard and the grower. There are some estates whose unfailing quality and high standards yield wines which can always be admired.

One of these is surely the collection of vineyards known as the Domaines Guyon. The family is particularly pleased with the success of their Hautes Cotes de Nuits; ample, full and well-constituted, it offers excellent value. Their Pernand Vergelesses Rouge is also especially fine. Of their two white wines, Pernand is a personal favorite of Dominique Guyon, the young and dynamic brother who oversees the operation of several of the select vineyards.
