En Primeur | Chassagne Montrachet

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.

    Goedhuis, December 2020

    This lower lying village parcel is bottled separately to show off its unique character and position next to the mighty Criots Bâtard Grand Cru. A fuller and more concentrated style, this has flavours of quince and lime with a touch of freshly buttered toast from the oak. Subtle power with a bright, energetic finish.

    Neighbouring Maltroie, but always delivering such a different style, this Champgains is a brilliant golden-yellow colour, with honeyed fruit flavours and hints of vanilla. An intensely concentrated wine with a touch of toffee and a gentle acid freshness on the finish.

    Lovely and smooth on the mid-palate, bookended with a piercingly fresh lemon zest nose and a lip-licking acidic tang on the finish. Classically Chassagne in shape and fully influenced by its chalky-fresh soils, this is a great way to cheat your way to a grand Chassagne flavour but with a village Chassagne price.

    This is an exquisite example of Chassagne Montrachet from nine different lieux dits in the appellation. Bright pure citrus fruits, this has a mineral intensity balanced with flavours of honeysuckle and fresh cream. Very pure and very long.

    Pretty mid yellow, lighter nose, but there is a good tight concentration of fruit behind, and I like the balance with good tension, and a long finish. Well made, at a manageable 13.2% alcohol. 3 stars

    The historical site of an old hemp field, this is a slightly cooler location amongst the Chassagne Premiers Crus and therefore creates wines with natural energy and brightness. Masses of satsuma and quince, this is a little more hedonistic than some years, but on the finish, one gets a rewarding sensation of saline minerality. As ever a top cuvée.

    Bruno Colin’s Chenevottes was partly frosted in the lower part of the vineyard. It has not fallen clear yet, but seems to have a deeper colour than his Vergers. Very good density of flavour, but still work in progress. 3 stars

    Goedhuis, December 2020

    These vines in Caillerets’ chalky, stony soil are some of the domaine’s oldest at 78 years old. A slightly more powerful and less mineral Caillerets than some years, perhaps a reflection of the lower yields in 2019. Intense and hugely flavoursome, with notes of fresh croissant and Jersey cream. The chalky minerality on the finish gives an added lift to this high-class wine.

    Located up on the hill towards St Aubin, Les Chaumées has sublime aromatics of camomile, jasmine and a touch of acacia honey. Very graceful as it flows through the palate and the touch of freshly baked baguette gives additional nuance on the finish.

    Cuvée Margot is named after Damien’s grandmother who was the source of his Le Montrachet vineyard. It is a blend of four different parcels in the village. With aromas of basil and lime, this is a vibrant Chassagne, with very good body and depth.

    The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Village "Margot", the name of this particular cuvée rather than the lieu-dit, comes from four parcels and is raised in 15% new oak. It has a well defined bouquet with orange pith and yellow plum aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is full of energy with impressive depth, gorgeous orange zest and mandarin notes, almond and a little walnut. Very harmonious and very persistent on the finish, this punches well above its weight. 2022-2036

    From 4 plots. Pale lemon and lime colour, quite a tight white fruit nose, suddenly at the back of the mouth arrives an explosion of fruit, quite tropical, but still defined mostly by very ripe apple. Genial, but unexpected. The fruit stays long in the mouth. 4 stars

    Goedhuis, Decemeber 2020

    Fairendes is a lieu dit within the better known Premier Cru of Morgeot and the Coffinets bottle this plot separately. They feel it is more graceful and poised, and that its unique quality would be lost if bottled with other parcels. A balance between creamy rich texture and bright mineral freshness. With flavours of clementine and ripe citrus fruits, this is a wonderfully discreet style. A very special wine.

    The position of this vineyard high on the hillside of Chassagne helps maintain an excellent freshness in this wine. Very aromatic with scents of fresh clotted cream and honeysuckle. On the palate there are rich flavours of brioche and crème caramel, but it is also very bright and lively. A rewarding style.

    La Maltroie is a Premier Cru that always makes an impact, characterised by its breadth and generous fruit. Initially more subtle than in some years, it unfurls into a glorious profusion of flavours. Fresh clotted cream and cracked hazelnuts. Intensity, layered, full and very long.

    Mid lemon and lime with a mix of fruit and barrel notes. This is a very good example of Maltroie because the fruit rapidly takes the upper hand, whereas this vineyard can be a little neutral. There is a light lemon touch here, from the balanced acidity. Decent length. 4 stars

    Morgeot is the largest Premier Cru in the Côte d’Or at 58 hectares, surpassing even Clos Vougeot (51 hectares). Unsurprisingly therefore, there is a huge variety of styles and quality levels, but Bruno’s always shines as one of the very best. Light lemon colour, this wine has an arresting mineral limestone freshness. It combines finesse with richness, layered flavours of lemon, mandarin and buttered croissant. Delicious.

    Tough and sinewy with concentrated fruit and a very long finish, this is a grand wine with a powerful stance and it will age well, too. More red-shaped in terms of its skin-derived ‘tannic’ grip on the finish, this is a macho, structure Chassagne and it will fall into balance within four years.

    Pale lemon colour. The nose is a little bit more backward here, altogether tighter. A mix of lemons and yellow plums, actually not as powerful an example of Morgeot as sometimes, reflecting that these hotter vintages are lightening up this sector. 3 stars

    One of the most central lieux dits in the village, just below Premier Cru Champs-Gains. Thierry bottles this parcel separately as, in his view, it is an immaculate representation of the appellation’s white wines. A little reserved on the nose, on the palate it is full of pure citrus fruits, lemons and limes. A structured wine, with great intensity and a touch of what Thierry describes as crème anglaise on the finish.

    My favorite of Pillot's communal bottlings is the terrific 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Mazures, a satiny and incisive wine that's evocative of citrus zest, freshly baked bread and crisp orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, vibrant and concentrated, it concludes with a long, saline finish.

    Lemon and lime, lightly reductive nose, tightens it up. Quite complex notes, a sweetness of fruit on the palate, no real heat, long and balanced, a useful step up from the regular Chassagne. 4 stars

    Sitting just below Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru, this is such a highly regarded lieu dit. Slightly closed on the nose, although unsurprising given its tight structure. On the palate the wine opens up to show flavours of lemon zest, frangipane and nougat. Great weight. This is a top-class village cuvée.

    The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Enseigneres has a fresh, well defined bouquet with gentle orange blossom and light passion fruit aromas, a little mintiness in the background. The palate is nicely balanced with good concentration from the opening, moderate acidity, harmonious with a fresh, orange rind and quince-tinged finish. A very capable Chassagne to enjoy over the next decade. 2022-2032

    Clear pale lemon with an incisive lightly reductive nose. This starts leaner than expected, but soon fills out into a soft plump pillow of fruit, soft pears, but then the tension returns with some warmth too. The aromatics are not over-ripe and I did not pick the high alcohol level here. No doubt about the concentration, nor length and there is just enough acidity. 4 stars
