The 2018 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru La Cardeuse is deeper and more concentrated, wafting from the glass with aromas of rose petals, red berries, cherries, cinnamon and sweet soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with superb concentration, ripe tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, perfumed finish. This is a brilliant wine with a pedigree going back to the 1952 vintage that consumers fixated on the Côte d'Or more famous red wine producing villages overlook to their disadvantage.
The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet La Cardeuse Rouge 1er Cru is a monopole of the domaine, part of Morgeot, and includes 50% whole bunch this year. It has a clean, fresh bouquet of blackberry, bilberry and white pepper, all taut and very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins that frame the peppery black fruit and delivers great length. You can feel the whole-cluster contribution in this wine, but it does not dominate.
