Jadot Chassagne Montrachet 2018 375ml half-bottle, Burgundy, France

The name “Chassagne,” or “Chassaigne,” is derived from the common Latin word “cassina,” meaning a small house. The white wines of Chassagne-Montrachet are the most robust of the Cote des Blancs, becoming less delicate and more straightforward as one progresses southward from the grand cru vineyards at the Puligny border. Maison Louis Jadot vinifies the production of growers in the commune with which it holds purchase agreements based on the quality of the fruit each year. A traditional vinification in oak casks brings forth the rich, plump fruit and vinous full body of the wine, which shows a vigorous, aromatic bouquet and persistent, earthy finish.
