Winemaker Notes

Cool pear, citrus, pretty floral aromas. A balanced wine of finesse and restraint. Lovely minerality.

An excellent wine on its own or pair with any of the following: brie, gouda, chicken or turkey, roast game hen, mussels with cream sauce, escargot.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets has a steelier, more terse bouquet when compared directly against the Chenevottes, but given an hour in the glass it blossoms with attractive scents of fresh, dewy green apples, lime, white peach and subtle flinty notes. The palate is underpinned by razor-sharp acidity that lends it the most tension of Marc Morey’s 2011 whites and I suspect for that reason may reward the longest cellaring. Still, there is much pleasure to be gained from broaching the bottle now: another superbly balanced, beautifully focused Chassagne that you will finish to the very last drop. Drink now-2019+.

There is a hint of exoticism together with an extremely fresh and elegant nose of acacia blossom, citrus and spice hints. The notably rich yet precise and wonderfully energetic medium weight flavors ooze a fine minerality on the admirably complex and driving finish. This is altogether lovely and really very stylish.

A Côte de Beaune village 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.
