Situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, just beyond Puligny-Montrachet, the 350 hectares that make up the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation, with its well-draining and high concentration of limestone, is acclaimed for its diverse collection of terroir. From Village to Grand Cru classification – including the Montrachet, which is to white wines what Romanée-Conti is to reds – the vines are planted at an altitude of between 220m and 325m above sea level allowing them maximum exposure to sunshine and some of the best weather conditions in Burgundy. The journey to Chassagne-Montrachet from Pommard is ten minutes by car. For the more curious, a 45-minute cycle ride along the Route des Grands Crus is also a great way to see the sights.
Illuminating your glass with its elegant golden shine, with shades of green sparks beneath its legs, Chassagne-Montrachet 2013’s luscious minerality is the perfect choice to accompany a summer’s afternoon. Situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, the soils of this appellation are composed of well-draining limestone. The combination of both old and new French Oak during fermentation allows for prominent notes of acacia, honeysuckle and hazelnut to welcome the nose first, with gentle flourishes of freshly churned butter yearning for an introduction. The palate will then be tickled by a profound flinty, toasty, flavor that evolves into candied fruit and honey aromas…but only if laid down for a few years. This is a powerful and elegant wine with a long, succulent and pleasing finish. Savor it. Chassagne-Montrachet 2013 can be paired with any white meat, high-quality fish, lobster and even lightly cooked foie gras.

You will be greeted by a smooth finish. A perfect paragon of Chassagne Montrachet’s terroir, this 2015 displays a bold concentration of aromas in synergy with its refreshing acidity, a feature which rewards the wine with a longer potential for aging, developing more complexity with time.
