    Winemaker Notes

    A deep ruby color with a nose that must be aired to reveal crisp aromas of sour cherries, blackberries, and a touch of fresh undergrowth, with a delicate, youthful tannin structure. perfumed and slightly firm finish, which augurs the best.

    Pairs well with rack of lamb, ribs, soft cheeses and chicken.

    Bader-Mimeur, France
    Bader-Mimeur is owned by the Fossier family, whose patriarch Alan recently passed away unexpectedly (RIP). Their holdings include just about all the vineyards surrounding the Château de Chassagne-Montrachet which they have converted to wine since the early 1900s. They produce a collection of wines from vineyards in and around that heralded appellation, with the centerpiece being the five-hectare core estate of Château de Chassagne-Montrachet. Just outside the stone wall of the château and Chassagne designation is their single vineyard Dessous les Mues dedicated to both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir production. The clay and limestone soils in and around Chassagne allow for both varieties, and in combination with a collection of old vines, result in pedigreed, classy, and complex wines. These are excellent Bourgogne values that drink well above their price point, offering big league character at a minor league price.

    Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

    Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

    View all products

    A Côte de Beaune village of Burgundy most famous for its beautifully textured and powerful whites, Chassagne-Montrachet reaches farthest south in the Côte d’Or, save for the village of Santenay. It has three Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet overlap with and are (confusingly) shared with the village of Puligny-Montrachet. But Chassagne-Montrachet bears sole ownership of the Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru.

    The beauty doesn’t stop there as the village has a great many outstanding Premiers Crus wines and village level wines. Most famous Premiers Crus vineyards include Les Chenevottes, Clos de la Maltroie, En Cailleret and Les Ruchottes. Also, village level wines offer many lovely examples of what Chassagne-Montrachet has to offer, but at more approachable price points and perhaps less demand of waiting.

    The best sites in Chassagne-Montrachet have complex soils of sedimentary rock and limestone (with less marl). Whites, which are by law composed of 100% Chardonnay (as in all classified white Burgundy from Côte d’Or), have steely power, bright and concentrated citrus, stone or tropical fruit characteristics and attractive textures ranging from plush to tactile, grippy and mineral-driven.

    There is some fine Pinot Noir produced from the village. These wines tend to be high-toned and earthy, with wild herb aromas and suave tannins.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
