A wonderful set of wines here as ever from the Bourgogne Blanc right through to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet.

A wonderful set of wines here as ever from the Bourgogne Blanc right through to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet. Yields were a little down on a normal vintage, but it was the heat and water stress that really marked the vintage with particular effect on volumes from his Chaumee and En Remilly sites.

2020 was an outstanding vintage for Philippe and his team, that really took advantage of the unique conditions of the vintage to bring out opulence and purity of their fruit whilst maintaining a firm, taut minerality that is synonymous with the Domaine.

From the top of the hill, there was even more hydric stress here giving the fruit a riper, richer feel. The noise is subtle but exhibits yellow fruit, citrus oil and a floral undertones. The limestone soil plays its part wonderfully with a fine chalky feel and gently envelops the riper stone fruit on the palate. The finish has a mouthwatering stoney minerality that lures you back in for more. Nick Daniell, Club Wine Buyer

Pale lemon colour. The bouquet is restrained but one can sense more volume than the village Chassagne. This has a little more flesh, definitely some yellow fruit, a little bit lemon scented as well. The palate stretches out in attractive fashion with a graceful lick of oak. While the fruit is on the softer side, the framework keeps it steady. Tasted: October 202190-92pts Jasper Morris

The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chaumées Clos St.Abdon 1er Cru is very pretty on the nose: Golden Delicious, hints of yellow plum and light petrichor scents. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, quite spicy with veins of ginger towards the composed and quite persistent finish. This is very promising. 90-92pts Neal Martin
