Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanchot-Dessus

2018
France
Burgundy

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.

"The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanchot-Dessus is showing brilliantly, wafting from the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, buttered toast, orange oil and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's lavishly textured, with a fleshy core of fruit, huge concentration and bright buttressing acidity. Long and penetrating, it certainly makes its proximity to Montrachet felt—though I would rather drink this Blanchot-Dessus than many renditions of Montrachet!"
