Tasting Note:

Traditional full and hearty Chassagne. Rich notes of brown butter and brioche with a sharp citrus fruit acidity to cut through it. Unctuous and racy at the same time. This will please classic Chassagne lovers. Morgeot is a big vineyard that has the propensity to make very full and sometimes dull and heavy wines, however Caroline’s parcel is from the higher part of the Morgeot, on a slope where the wines show more finesse and distinction; this parcel is called Les Petits Clos, which will now be used on the label from the 2011 vintage onwards.

Ageing is in 30% new oak for 18 months.
