Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 2010

Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 750ML 2010      
Sku: 16410

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2012)
Drouhin’s 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet bursts from the glass with an exciting melange of deep, yellow fleshed fruits, butter and spices. The personality and character of Chassagne flow through nicely in this textured, generous offering. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.

Technical notes
Site: located in the South of the Cote de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the villages, together with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, making up the celebrated ”Cote des blancs” (the slope of the ”whites”). History & tradition: the name comes from ”cassanos”, a Celtic word used for a place where oak trees grow; ”rachet” means a poor, dry, infertile soil, a paradox when thinking of the richness of the Chassagne-Montrachet wines! Soil: complex soil, made up of marl, limestone, yellow or red clay, scree and gravel; these soils are mostly light and easy to cultivate; they are located on a mild slope, with good exposure.
