Bader-Mimeur Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet
Chassagne Montrachet is one of the highly sought after appellations in Burgundy. In the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, shares with Puligny the uncontested title of the prince of the world’s dry white wines: the divine Montrachet (pronounced “Monrachay”). This fine, broad hillside brings out the very highest expression of the two Burgundian grapes - the Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay, which grow here side-by side - such is the complexity of the region’s soils. Extensive marble quarries, which form a kind of cliff face, were the source of the pink and beige flagstones which went into the building of the Trocadero in Paris and more recently the Louvre Pyramid. The Chassagne- Montrachet AOC dates from 1937.
100% Chardonnay, traditionally vinified.
Gilbert& Gaillard Guide 2020: 92/100
"Bright gold color. Fine nose, woody root, opening to white flowers, sweet almond, vine peach. Delicate palate, entirely dedicated to fruity expression. The finish is adorned with a nice acidity, a sign of aging. Gourmet and racy."
On arrival at the winery, white grapes are carefully dumped on an elevator which drives them in a pneumatic press. After a small twelve-hour decantation into vats, the juice is put by gravity into the oak casks of the cellar, under the winery.
The wine of different vineyard sectors is individually treated in different casks. Casks partially renewed (about 20% each year) for a marriage quality between the oak and the vintage. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations follow each other naturally. The casks are topped-up to compensate every week for the evaporation.
The wine is regularly tasted, analysed, surveyed and gently aerated (by slow transfer from one cask to another) to obtain the maximum expression of quality on your table. The resulting wines from different “cuvées” of the same appellation are blended to obtain the quality and taste that satisfy our customers. The wine will mature in oak casks during 10 to 14 months before bottling.
