"Vivid red colour. Intense and complex aromas, reminiscent of candied fruit or fruit jelly, raspberry, blackberry, and a light woody touch. As the wine ages, these aromas evolve towards subtle notes of mushroom and spices, such as nutmeg. When the wine is younger, the flavors highlight a nice framework marked by fine tannins. Long and persistent in the aftertaste, with lingering notes of candy and spice". Winemaker Notes
|Site: south of Beaune, one of the last villages of the Cote de Beaune.
History & tradition: a village with ancient origins. Its name is derived from the Celtic word ”cassanos”, meaning ”planted with oak trees”. The appellation is planted with both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Lately, a lot of Chardonnay has been planted so that red Chassagne is actually becoming rare!
Soil: clay and limestone.
