...brims with clean, pure fruit flavors. Yet despite its sheer volume, it remains elegant, with a finish so harmonious it flows like thick cream. The wood is subtle and complements the lovely honey, spice, melon and hazelnut notes...

...displays a robust and powerful, oil-textured mouth filled with toasted apricots and peaches. Concentrated and long, this delicious offering should be enjoyed over the next decade...

..superbly elegant and complex with the finesse, minerality and elegance so often found in the wines of En Remilly. There is a pronounced stony quality as well as a racy, almost nervous aspect with only a trace of finishing fat..


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet, En Remilly

Chassagne-Montrachet is the appellation that covers the communes of Chassagne-Montrachet and Remigny, and it is the southern-most of the Côte d’Or’s three great white wine appellations of Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. With 1,200 acres of vineyards, it is one of the largest appellations in the region, and more than half the vineyard acreage is Grand Cru or Premier Cru. The three famous Grand Crus are Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. There are also 16 main Premiers Crus, most of them considered very high quality, and village wines. One fact rarely noted is that historically the appellation produced more red than white wine. In the late 1990s the ratio of white to red wines changed, however, as more vineyards were converted from Pinot Noir to Chardonnay, a logical decision given the acclaim of the appellation’s whites. There are still intriguing red wines produced. Clive Coates wrote that the appellation’s white wines generally are “full and firm, more akin to Puligny than to the softer, rounder wines of Meursault.”


White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
