Buy Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc
Vinous 88 points - Pale yellow-green. Classic Chassagne aromas and flavors of pear, white flowers and mint. Bright and intense, with lively acidity giving cut to the middle palate. Finishes with a hint of salty minerality. Today this is more harmonious than the Puligny villages. 88-90 Points (Sep 2013)

Technical notes
Site: located in the South of the Cote de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the villages, together with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, making up the celebrated ”Cote des blancs” (the slope of the ”whites”). History & tradition: the name comes from ”cassanos”, a Celtic word used for a place where oak trees grow; ”rachet” means a poor, dry, infertile soil, a paradox when thinking of the richness of the Chassagne-Montrachet wines! Soil: complex soil, made up of marl, limestone, yellow or red clay, scree and gravel; these soils are mostly light and easy to cultivate; they are located on a mild slope, with good exposure.

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name. Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew. At the same time, the founder’s passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas. Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture. Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance. The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure. Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents. Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.
