This wine is the Chardonnay grape dressed in glittering gold! It boasts firm coloration with green highlights. Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and in some cases toast or fresh butter. This wine boasts a profound minerality (flint). Age brings in notes of honey or ripe pear. Rounded and often opulent, its attack is instantaneous. On the palate, fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent. Its opulence and power make it an ideal partner for delicate fine white meats such as poultry or veal in sauce. Fish, either in well-speiced couscous or in Asian dishes such as curries or stir-fries are also well-suited. Salmon, in itself highly aromatic, harmonizes particularly well. The Premiers Crus will readily complement crawfish, lobster, or even foie gras. -Winemaker’s Notes
Wine Advocate (WA)
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chaumées comes from a vineyard that Blair has had to start fertilizing. The nose is bright and lively with citrus fruit, honeycomb and a hint of marmalade. The palate is well balanced, quite saline on the entry with a twist of bitter lemon and good tension on the finish. Not a bad Chassagne at all and I expect it will end up towards the top of my banded score once bottled. – Neal Martin – 28-12-2016
A whiff of the exotic can be found on the white peach, petrol, lemon zest and softly toasty nose. There is both good volume and energy to the appealingly textured medium weight flavors that possess reasonably good detail on the delicious and balanced finish that is clean, dry and again well-focused.
