Winemaker's Notes

This wine is sourced from the southernmost tier of Chassagne, on the border with Santenay, where it sits high on a hill. Its position gives it slightly less exposure to the late day sun which provides this wine with raciness and fine breed rather than the more massive structure of the 1er Crus in the center section of the village. This small (0.15 hectare) parcel was planted in 1975.

Critical Acclaim

"A very subtle trace of wood frames a white orchard fruit and high-toned citrus and floral-suffused nose that is still tight and reserved but ultra-pure with detailed, stony and gorgeously vibrant middle weight flavors that possess a pungent limestone character and this finishes with a finale of stunning intensity. I love classic Baudines for its "no holds barred" minerality and this chiseled and cool example promises to deliver that in spades.

Range: 91-94 Points"
94 Points

"Lemon, lime and grapefruit aromas are enlivened by a wild floral perfume. Displays superb sucrosite on entry, then very good lemony tension in the mid-palate. Lots of fruit here but not yet complex. Finishes a bit warm. 91(+?) points"
