Chassagne-Montrachet Les Embazées
- Site: located in the South of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the villages, together with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, making up the celebrated “Côte des blancs” (the slope of the “whites”).
- The vineyard stretches along the slope close to Santenay.
- The word “Embazées” might come from “Ambassiacus”, a gallo-roman estate still hosting the vestiges of a villa which was mentioned in some medieval texts.
- Soil: complex soil, made up of marl, limestone, yellow or red clay, scree and gravel; these soils are mostly light.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay
FOOD PAIRINGS: Due to the refinement of their bouquet and the elegance of their flavors, these great white wines are unquestionably destined to accompany haute cuisine : shellfish cooked in a light wine sauce (court-bouillon) or any delicate fish (such as Dover sole) prepared grilled or poached. The wine should be served no colder than 13°C (57°F).
TASTING NOTES: “The wine is bright with a light golden color. Its aromas, reminiscent of hawthorn, acacia, honeysuckle, evolve toward hazelnut, and after a few years maturing, deliver some hints of honey and ripe pear. On the palate, this opulent wine offers long lasting flavours lingering a long time in the aftertaste”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
