2012 Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru, Chardonnay, Burgundy.
The complex and balanced 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Chevenottes is pure Chardonnay. It comes from an exceptional plot which grows near Montrachet and the famous "pierre de Chassagne" (Chassagne rock) composed of a mainly calcareous- clay soil. The East orientation and the fresh air create favourable conditions for a pure and aromatically fresh wine. The year of ageing in oak barrels brings a good aromatic complexity. The bouquet is nervous and dominated by lemon notes. The palate offers a clean and precise wine with a nice mineral aspect.
