The robe of this Chassagne-Montrachet is typical of a Chardonnay: a gold colour with green reflections. On the nose, we can clearly distinguish aromas of hawthorn, acacia and honeysuckle, with verbena and hazelnut added to the mix. Its minerality still comes through and there’s flint to balance the natural fat. With age, it will tend towards notes of honey and ripe pear. On the palate, its opulence persists, and it remains undeniably well balanced.
Poultry in its finest form will pair perfectly with this Chassagne-Montrachet. But fish should not be overlooked, even spicy fish, or characterful shellfish like lobster. It will also go wonderfully with foie gras.
Serve at 12 to 14°C
