Tasting Notes

Allen Meadows, June 2014, Score: 90

Soft wood sets off aromas of pear, white peach and pineapple hints. There is very good richness to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a highly seductive texture thanks to the abundant dry extract that is buffered by the tangy acidity on the balanced and slightly austere finish. This is balanced and I like the persistence though the depth, while solid, is not at the same level as the best of these Chassagne 1ers. Drink 2015+

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.
