    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Jean Noël Gagnard, Chassagne Montrachet, Les Chenevottes, 1er Cru, 2014

    A note of freshly churned butter alongside ripe citrus flesh and zest, clearly defined flavours and bright acidity, fine but also taut. There's an extra element of extract over the masures, and an almost tannic chewy character through the middle. A vineyard located at the northern edge of the village, on the Saint-Aubin side towards the bottom of the hill. The slope is gentle but enough to ensure good drainage, The soil is light clay mixed with iron rich pebbles.

    Jean-Noël has now long since retired, his daughter, Caroline Lestimé, has taken control of the vineyard, cellar and office at Domaine Jean-Noël Gagnard since the mid nineties and has recently been joined in this by her husband Hubert. Caroline is producing authentic Chassagne of great quality in way that is respectful both to tradition and the environment. The Domaine’s boundaries encompass some superb vineyards including Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets and Bâtard-Montrachet. The white wines are made in the traditional way, being kept in barrel for at least 18-20 months, only about a quarter of which will be new, and are bottled with only the very lightest of filtrations. They are expressive, impressive Chassagnes that display the complex nuances of their terroir. The estate was certified organic as of the 2014 vintage.
