The domaine’s vines in the premier cru Les Blanchots Dessus were planted in 1929 and they produce a wine of great depth and richness. 3-4 barrels produced annually, 25-33% new oak. Aged in barrel for 24 months. 30-45 g/L sulfur added at bottling.

Very limited; please inquire.

"The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanchot-Dessous was very backward on the nose when I tasted it from barrel, though with aeration it reveals a Meursault-like nuttiness that remains very subtle. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with joyful, energetic fresh lime and white peach notes, even a suggestion of strawberry towards the elegant finish. This is so harmonious and pleasurable even at this premature stage. Quality from start to finish. "
