“Reccomended source” Clive Coates 1 of 6. In the three Chassagne 1er en rouge, we have contrasting upper and mid slope qualities. The Clos St Jean is an upper slope example, with more delicacy and an airier nature, finishing salty mineral. Yummo!
I can’t tell you how much I adore the airy weightlessness of this wine, a function of its light sandy soils. In both 2013 and 2014, this is a Chambolle lovers delight, as it has that painfully pretty weightless red fruited profile driven along a mineral core. If you like such wines, of beguiling pale and pretty treble nature, this is a must…..
“(from sandy and rather light soil). A ripe, pure, airy and elegant nose combines notes of plum, black raspberry and spice with soft earth and floral nuances. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is at once refined yet opulent while flashing a subtle minerality on the lingering, suave and well-balanced finale. I very much like the texture that is primarily due to the relatively fine-grained tannins. (89-92)/2022+” Allan Meadows
