Pied du Mont Chauve cellars

The Picard family own the beautiful Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet and its magnificent vaulted 11th and 14th century cellars. The domaine is run by Francine Picard, who's grandfather, wine merchant Louis Felix, set the wheels in motion in the 1950's. Francine's father Michel started to buy vineyards in the 1970's and in 1997 he purchased the dilapidated chateau.

An extensive, and no doubt expensive, renovation ensued and today it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the Cote d'Or. When I visited in April, further upgrades were being carried out and wine lovers may visit, taste and even stay at the chateau.

The domaine owns 35 hectares in the Cote de Beaune including some very fine vineyards in Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet.

Today, we feature the Chassagne 1er Cru Clos St-Jean 2014. Those of you who read Jancis Robinson will know she seldom gets carried away in her reviews. This time she certainly has. Who wouldn't want a White Burgundy described as "Real forward attack on the palate - everything gathered into a crossbow arrow of powerful flavour. Masses of mouthwatering acidity. Almost as if it was a glass of liquid lime-soaked white marble. Quite addictive!"

Jancis Robinson: 
On red sandstone. 10% new oak. 
Slightly elusive, teasing nose that reminds me a little of acacia blossom so dry that rubs to yellow dust between the fingers. Real forward attack on the palate - everything gathered into a crossbow arrow of powerful flavour. Masses of mouthwatering acidity. Almost as if it was a glass of liquid lime-soaked white marble. Quite addictive! 17.5 Points

More great whites from Au Pied du Mont Chauve
We have some lovely whites coming from this top domaine who own the gorgeous Chateau Chassagne-Montrachet.
They are one of the few owners of the rare and stunning Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Demoiselles, located across the lane from Montrachet and in many ways a mini version of its illustrious neighbour.
