Tasting Notes

Burghound, JUNE 2014, Score: 91

This is sufficiently ripe that it flirts with exoticism yet the mélange of dried yellow orchard fruit, petrol and spice scents remain fresh and bright. There is excellent concentration and plenty of minerality that adds lift to the intense big-bodied flavors as well as the mouth coating, saline and medium dry finish. While ripe, there is good acid support that keeps everything in good balance and this should drink well young but reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time too. 91/2017+

Region

Chassagne-Montrachet, White Burgundy

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.
