Tasting Note
Deep garnet in colour, this wine has a clean, yet pronounced nose filled with blackcurrant and red-fruit aromas. On the palate there are intense flavours of redcurrants, leather and plenty of wild fruits. What is more the tannin and acidity are well-balanced. Altogether a full-bodied and powerful wine which will age beautifully .Tasted 09/02/05

Vinification
Traditional in open vats

Description
Chassagne-Montrachet and its neighbour Puligny-Montrachet are well-known for their Grand Crus, the most famous being the Montrachet. However, apart from these white Grand Crus, Chassagne-Montrachet also produces outstanding red wines. These wines have good body and their structure is reminiscent of the reds from the Côte de Nuits.
