  • THE BRIEF
  • Founded in Burgundy in 1880, Maison Drouhin has been assembled over the years parcel by parcel, and now comprises 73 ha of vineyards in the Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune, Cote Chalonnaise and Chablis.

    Located in the South of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the villages, together with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, making up the celebrated 'Côte des Blancs.'

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Fruit is hand-picked and sorted at the winery, followed by crushing and a very gentle pressing. Juice from the last pressings is not retained to preserve quality and fruit purity. Fermentation in temperature-controlled vats. No cultured yeasts are used in fermentation. After ferment, the wine is racked off its lees straight to barrel for maturation. 25% new oak, 12 months ageing.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A generous and elegant wine. Light golden colour. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, animated by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company. With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations. The style of Joseph Drouhin is an alliance between character, balance and harmony. Wines meant to be drunk young are fresh and subtle; wines meant for keeping acquire with age a luscious complexity.

    NEAL MARTIN - WINE ADVOCATE


    The 2014 Chassagne Montrachet is a touch more muted on the nose compared to the 2014 Puligny Villages, but it just needs a little more coaxing with honeysuckle and beeswax aromas. The palate is taut and fresh, very citric in the mouth with lime and citrus lemon, hints of orange zest developing towards the satisfying finish that has a little more depth than the Puligny. This is lovely.'

    Very definite character here: cedar, mealy oak and lovely fresh depth of citrus fruit, the winemaking held back to reveal that freshness, overall rather gentle.' 16.5 / 20 Points
