A voyage of discovery through the Premier Cru vineyards of Chassagne

 

Chassagne-Montrachet is quite a large commune. It boasts over 50 Premier Cru vineyards, although many are subdivisions of larger classified sites. 

 

The soil structure is complex and has more in common with the Cote de Nuits. Above the village the land slopes upwards towards the forest and a quarry producing pink-grey marble-like stone can be seen.

 

Higher on the slopes the soil is more limestone producing wines with minerality. As you travel down slope there is more clay, with gravel and limestone pieces which produce fuller bodied wines. 

 

The different soils, aspects and micro climates are what makes Burgundy so interesting.

 

Our latest Mixed Dozen Tasting Pack 12 Different Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Crus from the classic 2010 vintage.

The wines in this Pack are: 

 

High on the slope 

More mineral in style. Stylish and fine.

Morey-Coffinet C-M 1er Cru Les Caillerets
Jean Chartron C-M 1er Cru Cailleret
Fernand and Laurent Pillot C-M 1er Cru Grandes-Ruchottes 

 

Morgeots and its sub-vineyards 
Morgeots is a very large vineyard and some climats certainly produce better wines than others. Makers with better holdings invariably declare it on the label. An interesting comparison can be made between these three wines. 

Roger Belland C-M 1er Cru Morgeot Clos Pitois Monopole
Chateau de la Maltroye C-M 1er Cru Morgeot Vigne Blanche
Morey-Coffinet C-M 1er Cru Morgeot Fairendes  

 

La Maltroie 
Situated around the Chateau with some very good makers and old vines. Only the Chateau can use a Y in the spelling.

Alex Gambal C-M 1er Cru La Maltroie
Vincent and Francois Jouard C-M 1er Cru La Maltroie Vieilles Vignes 

Chateau de la Maltroye C-M 1er Cru Clos du Chateau de la Maltroye MONOPOLE 

 

Les Champs Gain 
Between Morgeot and Maltroie this is a fine site for whites with raciness and depth and good body. 

Fernand and Laurent Pillot C-M 1er Cru Champsgains
Vincent and Francois Jouard C-M 1er Cru Les Champs-Gain  

 

And from next to the Grand Cru Batard-Montrachet 
The seldom seen Vide Bourse. Jasper Morris MW says "in many ways a "petit Batard"."

Fernand and Laurent Pillot C-M 1er Cru Vide Bourse

We have assembled a Mixed Dozen comprising 12 Different Vosne-Romanees from 2009 and 2010. You will find a mix of makers and vineyards - some great comparisons can be made between makers, vineyards and the two top vintages of 2009 and 2010.
