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. This traditional vinification in oak casks brings forth the rich, plump fruit and full body of the wine, which shows a vigorous, aromatic bouquet and persistent, earthy finish.
These great wines should be kept for special meals: foie gras, entrées and fish in cream sauces, fine charcuterie and white meats in rich sauces.
This village wine comes from a number of growers who supply Jadot on a regular basis. It is bold and ripe with citrus and white stone fruits as well as plenty of acidity. Its rounded character will show more strongly as it ages. Drink from 2020.
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet Villages is more successful than its Meursault counterpart this year. It has a pleasant, simple, tropical-tinged bouquet with wild honey and brioche scents developing. The palate is well balanced with a soft, slightly yeasty entry with good acidity and fine salinity on the finish. This comes recommended.
