Au Pied du Mont Chauve

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Pale golden straw. Immediate whiff of gunpowder wafts past lemon zest and warm juice undercoats; lemon verbena, living sage, chive, and colored pencil. Palatal silk evaporates to spongey pith of lime in a magically, porously, dry transformation shimmering with crystalline suggestions and smoky allusions.long and heartfelt reverberations beyond its last drops.

Les Masures Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

Scents of petrol, apricot, and lime. Really enticing flavors of peach, citrus, vanilla. Long finish with just the right amount of acid. #whiteburg #chassagnemontrachet #jeanmarcpillot — 2 years ago

Blanchots Dessus Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016


Lemon tart, lemon curd and lemon yoghurt on the nose. Hints of apricots and green pineapple as well. On the palate high acidity, chalky minerality, green apples and lemon. A hint of butterscotch. It seems rather ripe and rather evolved in color for a 2016. #montrachet #chassagnemontrachet #chardonnay #burgundy #whiteburgundy — 2 years ago

Les Macherelles Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

Young, but accessible. Gun flint nose is instantly seductive descending like smoke onto brioche and twists of impossibly minute lemon peel, lime and tangerine piths, underripe pineapple freshness, Marcona almond, toasted sesame, chalky chunks have absorbed the smoke, and fallen citrus celebrates its rebirth. Lemon pith that oozes lemon skin oils like dewdrop diamonds. Incredible minerality that crystallizes into spines of grapefruit, dandelion, dried gooseberry, and marigold. Shiny, bright, crystal clean, and revelatory. Amazing compilation of parts that remains suspended like a chandelier in ethereal weightlessness.

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

Peche de vigne, white peach, big time.
Intensity but big minerality and salinity too which makes it last and stand.
A super classic and quite bold chassagne-montrachet, very pleasant may be lacking a bit of sharpness.

Lemon, leek, lime, sage, dried pineapple and tangerine pith, jasmine and caperberry nose. Racy lemon pith and oils are rounded just slightly by green olive whisper, rich white grapefruit, snap pea and lemongrass. Seductive and fast!

Les Embrazées Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

#chassagnemontrachet #premieurcru eagerly waited a couple of years to open this. First day, drank it too cold and paired it with gulf coast Grouper meunière-style which would have went better with a steely crisp Chablis. 2 days later from wine fridge, serving in a Pinot Noir bowl wine glass my experience was transformed as the wine warmed up gently on a cool sunny day. Lemon curd, ghee, almond paste, faint floral honey tones on the nose. Rich, almost oily mouthfeel, tension and mineral notes in the backseat with ascendant lemon curd, creamy meringue and ripe pear. Delicious layers of flavor from the last glass in the bottle. — a year ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Pinot Noir 2015

Fifth day open: roasted plums, cherries, jasmine, black tea, saddle leather. Nebbiolo-like and balsamic, yet it's immediately recognizable as Pinot. Another example of how '15 offers Cote-de-Beaune reds that are as good as they can possibly be. #chassagnemontrachet #pinotnoir — 5 years ago
