Brilliant bright yellow in colour, this wine is finely balanced between its limey citrus fruit aromas and enticing orange peel and kiwi fruit flavours. A very classy wine with a lovely mouth coating finish.
An interesting nose of gun flint, pear and soft floral aromas introduces the very round, even lush medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent concentration. While the volume is impressive this isn't nearly as precise as it normally is though I do like the citrusy and dry finish. Drink 2014+
Fine, leesy texture. Pretty compact nose but loads of generous fruit on the palate, filled out with well-judged vanilla oak character. Satisfying, really zippy acid, great length. Drink 2014-2020
The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet can be difficult to distinguish from Puligny. At their most typical they are slightly fleshier and more hedonistic, but are often just as mineral and refined making the two almost inseparable. When distinguishable, they offer notes of honeysuckle, lime blossom and honey. Many have become quite approachable when young. It is larger than Puligny with vineyards totalling over 330 hectares. Though it shares both the grand cru vineyards of Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachet, it has sole ownership of the miniscule Criots Bâtard Montrachet. Similar to Puligny, Chassagne also grows Pinot Noir, which can be austere when young. A small amount of red Chassagne is also made.
