2014 Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet

'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'

DESCRIPTION
  • 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.'

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    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.

    TASTING NOTES

    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

  • REVIEWS

    '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.'
    89 Points - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    '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.'
