AOC Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy

Situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is renowned especially for its prestigious white wines.  The soils best suited for the production of white wines are primarily brown limestone.  The vineyard is divided into 22 different climates for the Premier Cru's whites on 70 hectares with about 3,300 hectoliters of production.

Tasting Notes

Golden color with green tints.  Fresh and elegant attack.  Nose on hawthorn, acacia.  Hints of honey on the palate.  Long and persistent finish.

It will go well with fish dishes such as fish in a dieppoise sauce, pike fish dumplings, or with poultry and white meats in a cream sauce, and with cheeses such as Brillat-Savarin, Vacherin and Brie de Meaux.  It can also be paired with a cold bavarian of lobster.

Alcoholic fermentation and maturing in barrels (25% new oak).

    "If you like elegant chardonnay with some oak, this is for you. Very fresh acidity, helping it to carry the generous body. The tannins are not too much. Plenty of citrusy flavors here. Drink or hold."
