Remoissenet Père et Fils, Chassagne-Montrachet Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France 2017 (750mL)
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 2017 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! It will have hedonists dancing on cloud nine!
