“Pierre Rovani of Remoissenet is the sourcing king: He secured two small parcels on the northern edge of Chassagne (which means close Montrachet proximity!) to craft today’s devastatingly lush and limited Burgundy. The opulence and precision here is jaw-dropping.”

Wine legend and Remoissenet GM, Pierre Rovani has been busy securing some of the region’s finest vine real estate. This label may only state “Chassagne-Montrachet” but it’s from two sustainably farmed choice parcels at the northern edge of the village, where Grand Crus Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet begin. The richness and verve in this wine is simply gobsmacking; it’s a veritable liquid luxury that will send all Chardonnay cognoscenti spiraling into a blissful stupor. 

Remoissenet’s 2019 Chassagne displays a deep, shimmering yellow-gold core with bright silver reflections at the rim. Although a 30-minute decant is recommended, it is generous and open right out of the bottle with full-throttle aromas of über-ripe yellow apple, grilled pineapple, apricot, lemon curd, fresh cream, marzipan, candied white flowers, powdery white stone, toasted nuts, warm baking spices, and vanilla bean. This is a very textural, opulent, full-bodied Chardonnay that will easily fool people into calling it a luxurious Premier Cru at the minimum! Let me stress the point again: This is an unapologetically lush white Burgundy powerhouse that will have hedonists dancing on cloud nine.
