Andre Goichot Chassagne-Montrachet 2018
The Chassagne-Montrachet controlled appellation dates from 1937. It includes some plots in the neighboring village of Remigny which share the same soil conditions. At altitudes between 220 and 325 metres, the succession of rocks from the top down is first rauracien then callovien and finally argovien. The soil of the various « climats » (named plots with distinctive qualities) ranges from pebbly limestones, through marls, to sandy soils with a Jurassic basis.
Handpicked harvest. Traditional fermentation in oak barrels (30% new casks). Maturation during 14 months in cellar for ageing, stored in barrels.
Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and in some cases toast or fresh butter. This wine boasts a profound minerality (flint). Age brings in notes of honey or ripe pear. Rounded and often opulent, its attack is instantaneous. On the palate, fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent. Serving temperature: 12 to 14 °C
Founded in 1947 near Meursault, Maison André Goichot is one of the most renowned negociant in Burgundy. Implanted in Beaune since 2000, as one of the last family company, the story of the House continues with the 3rd generation. Owner of Château de la Guiche since 1979 in Montagny, the estate grows in 2015 through Domaine les Guignottes with 10 hectares of Montagny, Montagny 1er Cru and Santenay. In 2017 we completed our estate with the 25 hectares of Château du Cray in Mercurey. In addition, the development of our negociant activity allowed us to build several strong partnerships in the most renowned burgundy appellations.
