92Wine Spectator

Lush, yet shows definition, with peach, melon, lemon and baking spice flavors heightened by the vivid acidity. Stays long and resonant on the finish.

91Stephen Tanzer

Complex nose offers sweet scents of white peach, lemon, lime, mint and peony. Rich, broad and savory, with a creamy texture nicely counterpointed by stony minerality. Silky and ample but with no shortage of inner-mouth tension.

...good freshness to the much more restrained and cooler middle weight flavors where an attractive bead of minerality adds lift to the moderately austere and saline-inflected finish.


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.
