Chassagne doesn’t match Puligny in Grands Crus surface but boasts double the number of Premiers Crus. So there! It’s tough to distinguish these from Puligny, given their similar aromatic profiles, but Chassagne tends to be less chiseled. Chassagne also produces plenty of elegant, if firm, Pinot Noir for which it was better known until the late twentieth century, when world fell in love with Chardonnay.
A classic Chassagne village with fragrances of yellow plum, Bosc pear and Lily of the Valley. A fairly rich palate for a 2008, with a lingering creaminess.
