Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2020 is a captivating wine that reflects the expertise and tradition of Maison Joseph Drouhin, crafted under the watchful eye of Winemaker Véronique Boss-Drouhin. Nestled in the renowned commune of Chassagne-Montrachet, in the South of the Côte de Beaune, this wine is a testament to the celebrated “Côte des blancs.”

Upon pouring, the wine reveals a light golden color, inviting one to indulge in its exquisite aroma. The nose is intense, graced with delightful notes of flowers, brioche, and candied lemon. With time, the wine matures, revealing intriguing nuances of grilled hazelnut and subtle spice, adding to its allure.

On the palate, Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2020 is both generous and elegant. The texture is pleasingly smooth, exuding finesse that showcases the careful craftsmanship of the winemaking process. The flavors are straightforward, and a hint of sweetness from fresh plum enchants the taste buds. The judicious use of oak barrels, around 20% new, adds depth and complexity without overwhelming the wine. Its remarkable energy and freshness exemplify the true expression of terroir and the character of the vintage.

The long, satisfying aftertaste leaves an indelible impression. Floral and gingerbread notes dominate, enticing the senses to linger on the exquisite finish. This wine is a journey of flavors, with each sip revealing new dimensions that captivate the connoisseur’s palate.

Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2020 is a result of careful vineyard management and a meticulous winemaking process. Grapes are hand-harvested in open-work crates and subjected to rigorous sorting. Slow pressing in a pneumatic press extracts the juice, and the last press is separated from the free-run juice. The wine is then transferred to oak barrels for fermentation and aging, which lasts between 14 to 16 months. The oak, sourced from French high forests, contributes to the wine’s finesse and complexity.

Renowned wine critic Jasper Morris awards this exceptional wine an impressive 94 points. He praises its crisp and clear notes of lemon and lime, lauding its excellent energy on the nose. Morris acknowledges the wine’s remarkable balance, describing it as full but not heavy, and commends the expertly judged oak influence. The exceptionally long finish makes it a top-notch choice for the discerning wine enthusiast.

Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2020 stands as a testament to Maison Joseph Drouhin’s commitment to producing wines that embody the essence of their terroir and the expertise of Winemaker Véronique Boss-Drouhin. With its generous and elegant character, this wine is a true treasure that delights the senses and leaves a lasting impression.

  1. Marlene Bream

    Decent white burgundy with nice minerality. Got it on sale, but still unsure if it’s worth the price.

  2. Jennifer Wilcox

    Chicago Wine’s Saturday Afternoon Tasting in Glenview, IL offered a walkaround experience. The wine showcased bright apple and pear notes, complemented by a subtle almond butter undertone. It displayed good richness and balance, with potential to improve with another year or two of aging.

  3. Doris Cianflone

    Chassagne Montrachet: Light hay yellow, acidic chalky impression, powerful middle, somewhat neutral taste. Needs more time.
