Located in central Burgundy, in the southern Côte de Beaune, the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation is one of the jewels of Burgundy’s viticultural heritage.
The first nose reveals intense, subtle aromas of candied fruits, blackcurrant, and smoky notes. This wine boasts good structure and nice minerality typical of the terroir, along with fruit flavours and ripe tannins. The finish is very nice, long and aromatic.
Ideal wine for fine dishes such as red meat, game, and mild, delicate cheeses.
Serve between 14 and 16°C (57-60°F).
