“It’s an amazing vintage for the reds,” says Marc-Antonin, “the fruitiness came by itself, we did not have to go looking for it.” These grapes were harvested from two 40-year-old plots which lie downhill from Chassagne’s road to Santenay, 2/3 coming from Les Platières, with the remaining 1/3 being tiny Pinot grapes from Les Lombardes. Grapes were 100% de-stemmed, then allowed to macerate at a cool temperature for 4-5 days prior to fermentation, giving a wine of medium-deep, ruby purple colour, with ebullient, freshly ripe, clean aromas. Palate shows intense, lively fruitiness, with firm finish – without hardness – and fine length (for drinking 2022-2028+).
