Arguably one of Chassagne’s finest 1ers Crus sitting just above Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet. Michel’s years of experience really show in this stunning cuvée. With bright citrus aromas it is a very polished style, showing a firm intensity of fruit. Weighted and defined with an elegant finish.
The oak is the standard 228 barrel for En Remilly. This is very good, pure and lifted and mineral. A bright, shimmering minerality on the finish. Very fine on the finish. Less overt than Bruno’s on the fruit, more on the minerality. Drink from 2019
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.
