From the South of Cote de Beaune, this Biodynamic white wine from Joseph Drouhin has strong aromas and straightforward flavors. It’s counted in the top one percent of wines in the world.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The name Chassagne Montrachet comes from the Celtic word, “cassanos,” which is a place where oak trees grow, and the word “rachet,” which indicates a poor, infertile soil. The latter is interesting, especially considering how rich the wines from this appellation are.

This Biodynamic wine is a generous one, made with Chardonnay grapes, and exuding a wonderful light gold color, and containing an ABV of 13%.

The Joseph Drouhin – Chassagne Montrachet has strong aromas of brioche, candied lemon, and flowers that evolve as it matures toward scents of spice and roasted hazelnuts. It’s straightforward on the palate, with a nice finesse, and floral and gingerbread afternotes.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

The Chassagne-Montrachet by Joseph Drouhin is great to serve as aperitif, paired with cured meats, and mild and soft cheeses. It’s also great with light tomato or pesto-based pastas, and rich fish dishes (think salmon and tuna).

A YOUNG MAN OF GREAT AMBITION

At the age of 22, in 1880, Joseph Drouhin settled in Beaune to found his own wine company. This young man from Chablis was brave, daring, with a good head for business, and he aimed to make great quality wines that bore his name.

It was when his son, Maurice, took over, that the House established a vineyard domaine, acquiring high quality appellations like Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot. And when Maurice’s son, Robert, succeeded him in 1857, they introduced “culture raisonée,” which was to do away with pesticides and other chemicals. He was one of the first in Burgundy to do so, and he also built a laboratory dedicated to enology, and run by the first woman enologist in Burgundy, Laurence Jobard.

House Drouhin is presently run by Joseph’s great grandchildren, upholding all the values with which their ancestor built his business—a constant search for quality, and a deep appreciation for the natural elegance of Burgundy.
