Chassagne Montrachet Rouge is a wine all Burgundy fans should try. In good hands it’s as elegant as neighbouring Volnay and superb value due to being in the shadow of its more famous white expression. 1er Cru Burgundy at village prices made by one of the best estates in Chassagne. Love it.
A pure, cool and restrained nose of airy essence of red pinot fruit also sees considerable added breadth in the form of soft earth, pepper and floral hints. The hallmark minerality of a fine Clos St. Jean is present in abundance on the precise, focused and attractively energetic flavors that are supported by ripe tannins and fine length on a finish that also displays a backend touch of oak. This also merits your consideration. – 92 pts - Burghound
