SKU #1265614 92 points Wine Spectator

 Balance and texture are the hallmarks of this sleek white. Peach, apple, floral and spice flavors mesh with the creamy profile and lively acidity. Fine length. Drink now through 2023. (BS, Web-2016)

88-90 points Vinous

 Pale yellow. Pretty aromas of fresh pear, flowers and crushed herbs. Sweet, pliant and nicely balanced. This sexy, fruit-driven village wine will give early pleasure.  (5/2015)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This offers a more interesting nose that is composed by hints of resin and petrol to the white orchard fruit and softly floral-infused nose. There is good richness and concentration to the extract-rich flavors that display fine power for a villages level wine as it finishes with good if not distinguished depth and length.  (6/2016)

Jancis Robinson

 Restrained nose. Classic structure and still a bit in reserve. Bone-dry finish.  (1/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Chassagne Montrachet Villages has a light, crisp bouquet with citrus peel and fresh pear on the nose, underneath which lies fine mineral scents that will become accentuated with time. The palate is very well balanced with good depth, just a touch of spice towards the finish that is quite linear at the moment, but displays fine salinity on the aftertaste. Drink over the next 4-6 years. (NM)  (12/2015)

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.
