Chassagne Montrachet, Côte De Beaune

Maison Alex Gambal

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2013

Thanksgiving week with my in-laws.

Nose has crushed flint, unstruck wooden matches, pear skin, lightly oxidized green apple, lime peel and light barrel notes.

Palate has rich tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, ripe peach), brown butter, yellow apple, fresh brioche, saline and honey notes on the long finish. Outstanding bottle, fantastic as a Village wine can get.

Vineyards sourced: l'Ormeau, Les Essarts and Les Masures.

Rock solid producer of Burgundy. Always very good and many at what I would call great pricing for Burgundian wine. One of my go to producers.

Paired well with our whites cheeses and the white turkey meat.

Vieilles Vignes Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

Heavily reductive, flinty nose. Slightly underripe nectarine, Meyer lemon and white peach fruit with an herbaceous finish suggesting fresh tarragon and toasted hazelnuts. It’s going to be great, just needs to integrate some of the smoky lees and other reductive characteristics. — 20 days ago

La Maltroie Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Decent mid-weight white burgundy, but not all that exciting. Clean, crisp, nicely balanced but with absolutely no “wow”. You have to question the price/quality ratio with wines of this type. Kiss of death is almost no sense of “terroir” or place—- just another dry white! — 25 days ago

Exceptional as always. Pale yellow gold with a slightly reduced nose of gunsmoke, lemon and yellow apple. Opened up beautifully over and hour plus and really gained weight. Mineral driven and no signs of premox. Yummmm — 4 days ago

Quite subtle, was hoping for a bit more expression but will let it unfold and see what happens. Edit: well, it was from the Coravin so of course was closed at first, 15 min later and I am hit with peaches, white flowers and a host of complexity on the palate. Bumped to 9.1 — 20 days ago

Personally I think you should not taste Montrachet blind 🤔
