Chassagne-Montrachet "Vieilles Vignes" 2014 Seguin Manuel


Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the most prestigious village appellations of the Côte de Beaune, alongside Puligny and Meursault. The grapes here come from old Chardonnay vines planted on a plot called "Les Gougeonnes" and have been aged in oak barrels for 12 months. The result is a round, mineral and buttery wine, combining aromas of white fruit, flower vanilla and toast. The finish is lovely and long with light spicy notes. A great wine for any type of seafood!

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

89/100 "The Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes has a light, gravel-tinged bouquet, a little austere for a Chassagne at the moment. I would like more fruité to come through. The palate is well balanced with crisp citrus fruit, quite elegant in the mouth with a lively, apricot-tinged finish that lingers. Once the aromatics open, this will be very fine."

Gilbert & Gaillard

93/100 "Bright pale gold colour. Intense and pleasant nose on flint, floral note, white fruit, vanilla touch. The palate is elegant, refined, dense, ample, velvety, with chiseled aromas. Few spices on the finish. Ideal with scallops!"
