We have loved this domaine since we first visited in Autumn 2016, and it is now one of the most talked about not just in Chassagne but also south of Beaune. Alex and his brother Benoît make a formidable team and the wines just seem to have a perfect mix of fruit intensity, weight, minerality and energy. The Bourgogne Blanc, is a Chassagne masquerading as a humble generic, whilst the real village Chassagne ticks every box in the definitive guide to Chassagne. Over the past decade the élevage has been extended and the new oak been more subtly handled meaning the wines have become more elongated and refined with added complexity and length.
This accessible wine offers a delicious combination of floral and honey notes. 2018 was a warmer vintage, and this is packed with ripe citrus and stone fruit notes on the nose, whilst the palate is balanced with good freshness, melted butter, and fabulous generosity of fruit.
