Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2015 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Clos des Murées, a monopole of the domaine, is more austere on the nose than the other crus, though there is just a touch of anise developing with time that lends a soupçon of exoticism. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation. There is palpable energy here, fanning out gently with a spiciness developing on the finish. One of best wines that I have tasted from this vineyard, this comes highly recommended.Drink Dates: 2018 - 2028Author: Neal MartinIssue: 228
Vinous | Rating: 91Bright, light yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of yellow fruits, spices, menthol and white pepper. Quite ripe owing to the vines' sheltered, less-ventilated position in a walled vineyard but also harder than the Clos Saint-Jean and dominated by its structure in the early going. Conveys an impression of sucrosité countered by earth and mineral elements. Finishes broad, firm and a bit tannic. This wine will need a couple years of bottle aging.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: Sep 2016
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
