Available for:
One of Chassagne-Montrachet's most elegant and luxurious wines, this complex bottling strikes a deft balance between the mineral character of Les Chaumées (derived from the higher chalk content in the soils) and the powerful, spicy character of Les Chenevottes (derived from higher clay content). Ripe fruit and slight flint aromatics deceive, as they segue to a palate that is broader, deeply expressive and full bodied with pure fruit and chalk, rounding out with a brilliant, long mineral-tinged finish that has a hint of smoke and spice.

The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is one of Philippe's favourites this year. It was showing the most reduction from the five Chassagne premier crus that I tasted with Philippe Colin. Just traces of citrus fruit and a touch of flint. The palate is harmonious right from the start, rounded in the mouth albeit missing some acidity and race towards the finish. It just found the Maltoie and the Clos Saint-Jean display more tension at the moment, but let's see how it turns out in bottle.
