2018 Chassagne Montrachet Albert Bichot

2018 Chassagne Montrachet Albert Bichot

Located in central Burgundy, in the southern Côte de Beaune, the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation, along with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, make up the prestigious "Côte des Blancs" which produces truly great white wines. However, Pinot Noir is very present in this village, often in areas that are more sandy than marly.

TASTING

Lovely floral bouquet on the nose with aromas of hot croissant or brioche and candied lemon. Over time, the nose develops nuances of spice and roasted hazelnut. Bold yet elegant on the palate, this Chassagne-Montrachet is fleshy and well balanced. Long on the finish with gingerbread and floral notes.

FOOD/WINE PAIRING

Ideal with fine fish and seafood, it is also a good match for white meats, poultry in sauce and full-flavored cheeses.

SERVING AND KEEPING

Serve between 12 and 14°C. (53°F - 57°F)
This wine is ready to drink though it may be laid down for 3 to 5 years.
