2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Houillères, Olivier Leflaive Frères

This village parcel is in the north of the commune, bordering Puligny Montrachet. If you turn your gaze up the hill, you’ll notice it is spitting distance from Bâtard Montrachet, with only the thin sliver of Vide Bourse 1er Cru separating them. The soil is slightly more humid here, which is no bad thing in a warm year like 2019 to help guard the vines against the drought conditions. It is quintessentially Chassagne in style: firmly structured, with a saline, savoury, nutty palate. But its Puligny proximity peaks through in that refined, steely finish. More than an average village wine, yet pleasingly, still priced as such.
