Henri de Villamont Les Embazées Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 2013

The Wine

The Chassagne-Montrachet premier cru Les Embazées white is a dry white wine. It falls into the category of still wine. It is produced in the vineyard of Burgundy, vineyard in the east of France and more precisely in the wine region of the Côte de Beaune. Its terroir benefits from an oceanic climate with a semi-continental influence and marly limestone and marl soil.

Chassgne’s terroir always gives mineral wines that are perfectly paired with Guinea fowl, pheassant or risotto. Can be aged 10-15 years.

Tasting Notes

“Textured and with a tight minerality, this is also a potentially generous wine, spicy and showing a creamy character from the wood. Lively acidity cuts through the texture with delicious fruitiness coming from behind to give a lift to this young, still very fresh wine. Drink from 2018” – 93 points + Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast
