    Sitting just below Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru, this is such a highly regarded lieu-dit. A melange of pink grapefruit, double cream, and Crunchy Nut Cornflake, this is so pleasurable to taste. These broad, captivating flavours blend perfectly with the refreshing energy on the finish. A village cuvée of real quality.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 90-92

    The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Enseigneres has a brisk, stony bouquet with hints of pressed white flowers and chai tea. The palate is well balanced, the 15% new oak just lending a little weight, very composed and harmonious towards the finish with perfectly judged acidity lending real tension. This comes recommended. Drink 2023 - 2038

  • Burghound, June 2022, Score: 89

    Ripe yet fresh and cool aromas include those of petrol, various white orchard fruit and a whiff of citrus rind plus a hint of acacia blossom. There is excellent intensity to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that deliver very fine length on the compact and much more structured finale. This lovely effort would benefit from having better depth, but more should reasonably develop if it is held for at least a few years first. Outstanding. Drink: 2027+

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 90-92

    Pale lemon colour nothing much showing up front on the nose, feels like optimum ripeness. Certainly, the fruit builds very well on the plate with a little sucrosity, then waves of white fruit behind. Plenty to enjoy here in this Chassagne made on white wine soil. Good length.

Region

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. 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.
