The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet are the most robust of the Côte des Blancs, becoming less delicate and more straight forward as one progresses southward from the Grand Cru vineyards at the Puligny border.
Another beauty from the well renowned Maison Louis Jadot!

"Wood toast and vanilla notes fight somewhat with the notably ripe peach, pear and rosemary resin aromas though not enough to dominate them. There is exceptionally good richness and mid-palate density to the extract-rich flavors that possess fine intensity and perfectly well-integrated supporting acidity that provides the shaping element for the dry, clean and crisp finish. Very good quality here albeit in a slightly woodier style than is typical for this wine."

"Once again, the 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet is beautiful. It captures the more refined side of the village in its subtle layers of perfumed, gracious fruit. This is a gorgeous wine at the village level, and one of the very finest relative values in white Burgundy. White floral notes wrap around the gracious finish. I can’t say enough good things about Jadot’s ability to craft such an exquisite wine at a production level in excess of 4,000 cases. Anticipated maturity: 2012+."
