Tasting Note:

A great deal more closed than the other Chassagnes, but a lot more energy and intensity within. A big step up in quality here; this will need time and as such Caroline will bottle this later than the other wines, in early 2020. With crunchy minerals and crushed rocks at its core, this has real bite. Alongside these savoury notes are tense citrus fruit flavours with a rounding buttery touch, finishing with a sea salt kick. Pleasantly austere, this has controlled the sunshine of the vintage with great success. Situated at the southern end of the "en Caillerets" sector; Caroline's vines are planted on a steep slope of shallow pebbly soils with a fine south-east exposure. The most precise and intense of Caroline Lestimée’s Chassagnes from her oldest vines (over 60-years-old).
