Trifecta

“Prototypical Chassagne-Montrachet.” - JS

Classy from foil to punt.

Chassagne and neighboring Puligny, sharing Grand Cru Montrachet, are home to the world’s greatest whites made of pure Chardonnay.

Alber Bichot is a house storied and famous as they come, for their vineyard sources and winemaking excellence as Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate recently affirmed that “Albert Bichot is a Burgundy stalwart… they currently produce some really quite excellent wines under head winemaker Alain Serveau.”

Combine that top terroir and expertise with a sublime vintage - per Wine Advocate again describing these whites as “fragrant, aromatically expressive wines with a succulence and textural plenitude that makes them very appealing indeed” - and you get the ultimate Burgundy trifecta. Throw in a glowing review on top of a 40% OFF deal that is even rarer than great white Burgundy these days, and you know, like we do, that these few cases we snatched won’t last.

Treat yourself, is all that’s there is left to say!

92 Points – James Suckling

“A prototypical Chassagne-Montrachet that is ripe and rather juicy, ripe pears and aromatic apples at the front, but then turns elegant with a very long, clean and complex, chalky finish. Drink or hold.”
