2014 Pierre Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Baudines"

SKU #1265502 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 ChassagneMontrachet 1er Cru les Baudines has a curiously Meursault-like bouquet, thanks to a tincture of hazelnut and smoke that evolves with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a keen thread of acidity, lively and saline in the mouth with a twist of citrus lemon on the focused finish. I like the bitter edge here. This is a lovely Chassagne-Montrachet. (NM)  (12/2015)

91-93 points Vinous

 Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of yellow plum and lemon. At once tactile and juicy in the mouth, showing superb definition and chewy minerality to the lemon and floral flavors. Still youthfully tight but finishes savory, perfumed and long, with excellent lift. This cool, high site typically does very well in the warmer years, noted Colin-Morey. (ST)  (9/2015)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This too is attractively fresh and bright with its elegant, cool and pure nose of green apple, lemon zest and white flower scents. There is excellent intensity and delineation to the overtly mineral-inflected flavors that deliver fine length on the markedly dry but not really austere finale.  (6/2016)

Jancis Robinson

 The Morgeot of altitude – power and finesse. Back to wonderful texture and round satin layer on the nervy expression of Chassagne. Spicy and shows very well. Great transparency. Refined. Very appetising. 17.5/20 points (JR)  (1/2016)

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Chassagne Montrachet

- A long, wandering village in the Côte de Beaune. Fortunately, what the workaday village lacks in charm, the wines more than make up for. Most famous for its white wines, which are lovely and delicate, Chassagne-Montrachet actually produces more red than white wine. It is one of the few places in the Côte D'Or where both red and white wines are produced from Premier Cru vineyards. The Grands Crus are Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet (both shared with the neighboring village of Puligny) and Criots Bâtard Montrachet.
