    Winemaker Notes

    Rich and round, with delicate apple and pear notes along with some excellent underlying minerality.

    The Bader-Mimeur family has owned and managed the vines in and around Chassagne-Montrachet since the 1700s. The chateau itself dates back to the eleventh century. Charles Bader was a wine merchant at the Halle-aux-Vins in Paris. He married Elise Mimeur in 1920. Her father, Charles Mimeur, owned the Domaine du Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet. Because of a family division, the chateau (located next door) is now run by another producer who markets wines from many other regions of Burgundy. However, the Bader-Mimeur family owns and manages 98% of the vines of the Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet as well as other vines located in the Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint Aubin villages. Alain and his wife Marie-Pierre Bader-Fossier are in charge of the domaine while Jean-Luc Huguenin is the vineyard manager and maître du chai, in charge of making the wines.

    The Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet property totals 5.07 hectares (2.43 in Chardonnay and 2.54 in Pinot Noir), all located within the Chassagne Montrachet producing area. Production totals about 33,000 bottles a year (2,750 cases).

    One of the amazing things about this domaine is the placement of their vines. Their Bourgogne Pinot and Chardonnay come from just outside the Chassagne appellation, while their Chassagne plots lie within extreme proximity to both Batard-Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. The vineyards are plowed and pruning is short. Grapes are all harvested by hand. Fermentation begins with a pied de cuve, and the wines are aged in barrel for approximately a year. Bottling is done after a light filtration.

    Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

    Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

    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.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
