Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanchot-Dessus

2016

The domaine’s vines in the premier cru Les Blanchots Dessus were planted in 1929 and they produce a wine of great depth and richness. Blanchot-Dessus is located just next to Montrachet and Criottes Batard Montrachet. 3-4 barrels produced annually, 25-33% new oak. Aged in barrel for 24 months. 30-45 g/L sulfur added at bottling.

 

91-94 points
"Smoky aromas of petrol, pear, apple and white flowers precede the succulent but quite powerful big-bodied flavors that possess excellent intensity while remaining well-balanced on the impressively persistent finale that also exhibits a subtle youthful austerity. Patience necessary."
