Chassagne Montrachet Wine

Chassagne-Montrachet wine is a cornerstone of Côte de Beaune, taking the familiar grape varietals Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and propelling them to almost incomprehensible levels of quality and intensity. The soil around this region is absolutely saturated with limestone, but there is also a healthy amount of red gravel which helps Pinot Noir reach its full potential. The dry, warm summers and cold winters define the continental climate that envelops Côte de Beaune, and you can smell the weather in the air, as raw life force surges through the land and sends chills down your spine.

The flavors of Chassagne-Montrachet wines will have you imagining a royal feast, bowls filled to the brim with ripe, succulent apricot, juicy kiwi, while fresh, plushy toast drips with hot butter. The whole experience is given additional depth by the mineral influence of the region’s terroir, an homage to the fine soil that helped produce these masterpieces. Expect to lose sleep as you unravel the mysteries of Chassagne-Montrachet in your mind, slowly and carefully, savoring each sensation to its fullest. Anyone who experiences these wines becomes infatuated almost immediately, as the glass speaks to something primal and emotional within.

2018 ramonet chassagne montrachet boudriottes Burgundy White

The Boudriotte blanc is produced from the climat Les Fairendes, located reasonably high on the slope, reaching almost to Les Ruchottes. This superb terroir for white wine has provided in 2018 a result that seamlessly melds citrus, mineral, and ripe apple aromas and balances them with surprisingly fresh acidity, a lovely depth of flavour on the palate, and impressive weight and length. Drinking Window 2021 - 2041.Decanter | 94 DECThe 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Boudriotte is showing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with notes of toasted bread, pear, waxy citrus rind, smoke and popcorn. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegantly fleshy, it's seamless and elegant, with fine depth at the core and a long, delicately nutty finish. Already approachable, this will offer a broad drinking window.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RPA mild touch of reduction is sufficiently subtle to permit the notes of white flowers, citrus rind and discreet wood to be discerned. There is an attractive sense of underlying tension to the delicious medium weight flavors that possess focused power and good delineation on the lingering finish that flirts with rusticity. This well-made effort needs to develop more depth but it appears to have the requisite density to do so. (Drink starting 2028)Burghound | 91 BHA grassy, herbal note makes this white distinctive, adding to the lemon and apple fruit. It finds more focus in the end, leaving a butterscotch- and pastry-tinged finish. Drink now through 2024. 60 cases imported.Wine Spectator | 91 WS

2019 Domaine Fernand et Laurent Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Rouge

The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeots Rouge mingles aromas of cherries, licorice, forest floor and spices in an inviting mélange. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and elegant, with a pretty core of fruit, lively acids and delicate structuring tannins, it’s a study in contrasts with its more rustic, chewy 2018 predecessor.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP(Domaine Fernand et Laurent Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet "Morgeot" 1er Cru Red) Much more discreet oak influence surrounds the markedly earthy aromas of plum, violet and dark berry liqueur. The medium-bodied flavors are not quite as concentrated, but they still possess good mid-palate fat that helps to buffer the moderately rustic and firm finale where a touch of wood slowly emerges. (Drink starting 2029).Burghound | 89-92 BH

2019 domaine ramonet chassagne montrachet premier cru les ruchottes Burgundy White

Muscular and powerful, the 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Ruchottes wafts from the glass with notes of pear, orange oil, peach, nutmeg and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and concentrated, it’s a rich, broad-shouldered Ruchottes that’s quite demonstrative out of the gates.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP

2019 michel niellon chassagne montrachet les vergers Burgundy White

From a parcel planted in 2000, this is a cuvée that goes from strength to strength, and the 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is excellent. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of pear, pastry cream, buttered toast and citrus oil, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a tightly wound core, racy acids and a chalky finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RP(Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet "Les Vergers" 1er Cru White) There is an interesting hint of mint tea on the lightly wooded and cooler aromas of apple, pear and white flowers. I very much like the vibrancy of the delicious and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that are agreeably dry and refreshing bitter lemon rind inflected finish that doesn’t quite offer the same depth and persistence. This is quite pretty though at present it’s not deep. (Drink starting 2025)Burghound | 91 BH

2020 domaine fernand et laurent pillot chassagne montrachet 1er cru fairendes Burgundy White

The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Fairendes is one of the highlights of the range this year. Bursting with aromas of peach, pear, hazelnut, nutmeg and both fresh and confit citrus, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and sensual, with excellent concentration, lively acids and a long, saline finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RPA much more floral-suffused nose speaks of aromas of poached pear, orange peel and a whiff of anise. The palate impression of the finer and more precise medium weight flavors also possesses a beguiling texture thanks to the abundant and mouth coating dry extract, all wrapped in a solidly precise, lingering and more complex finale. This somehow manages to be generously proportioned yet a wine of grace and delineation. This too is worthy of consideration.Burghound | 92 BH

2020 Louis Jadot Chassagne Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot Clos De La Chapelle Domaine Duc de Magenta

A rich and powerful Chassagne-Montrachet with some pineapple character, due to the very ripe vintage, next to the citrus that we expect. Built on quite an imposing scale, but with lovely lemon-zest freshness and fine tannins that support the flamboyant body. Long, quite stony finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.James Suckling | 94 JSThe last vintage of this wine chez Jadot as the vineyard has been sold. Medium yellow in colour. There is a little less overt power and perhaps a touch more terroir in this wine. Then the full weight kicks in, nicely married with its wood, and a sense of managed opulence behind infiltrated by good acidity.Jasper Morris | 92-94 JMThe swan song for this cuvée is the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle (Duc de Magenta), a muscular, concentrated wine that exhibits aromas of orange oil, peach, buttery pastry and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, with a fleshy core of ripe fruit and bright balancing acids, it offers a classic expression of Morgeot in all its exuberance.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91-93 RPThe 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle 1er Cru has a taut, fresh, vibrant bouquet with yellow flowers intermixed with light citrus scents, gravel and jasmine. The palate is smooth and harmonious, tangerine and nectarine on the entry, moderate weight with a slightly pithy finish. I am intrigued to see how this will develop. Closure: DiamVinous Media | 91-93 VMA slightly more elegant if otherwise similar nose introduces succulent, round and highly seductive flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the powerful, long and less citrusy finale. This is worth checking out.Burghound | 91-93 BHA juicy white introduced by aromas of resin and toasty oak. Offers peach, apple and citrus flavors that hold court, while a mineral accent lurks beneath the surface. Features fine balance and length. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases imported.Wine Spectator | 92 WSThe grapes are lightly crushed and fermented in cask (one-quarter new), to give this wine with aromas of ripe apricots and quince. The texture is broad and rich, with a density that probably needs a bit of age. At present is seems luxurious, but a bit heavy. The Clos de la Chapelle (Morgeot) is a monopole of the Duc de Magenta that Jadot has traditionally rented. It is just downslope from lieu-dit Morgeot, and is planted to both Pinot and Chardonnay (this section of 1.79ha is planted to the latter).Decanter | 92 DEC

2021 Domaine Fernand et Laurent Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot

The 2021 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot reveals aromas of pear, white flowers, freshly baked bread and beeswax, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and fleshy palate that’s vibrant and layered. This year, it includes Les Fairendes, which is sometimes bottled separately.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91 RP
