Jacques Carillon Chassagne Montrachet 2018

  • v88


Available for:
From vines planted in 2013 in Voillenot-Dessous, located immediately south of the village itself, Jacques's villages-level Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc displays more breadth than the Puligny mentioned above, with a slightly less forward mineral element. Still, the wine shows impressive verve, with surprising depth from such young vines. A modest proportion of new barrels keeps the delicate fruit-mineral interplay at the forefront.

The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Village has a rather "skinny" bouquet compared to the Puligny, quite malic in style and just missing some of the concentration that I was expecting. The palate is balanced with moderate depth, quite saline on the entry but never quite building on its initial promising, the finish just a little by-then-numbers compared to Carillon's other cuvées.
