2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Houillères, Olivier Leflaive Frères

This village parcel is in the north of the commune, bordering Puligny-Montrachet. If you were to stand here and turn your gaze up the hill, you’d notice you are spitting distance from Bâtard-Montrachet, with only the thin sliver of Vide Bourse 1er Cru between. The soil is slightly more humid here - a bonus in a warm, dry year like 2020. This wine has such a satisfyingly silky weight. Its Chassagne roots show in the nutty, savoury structure, and the influence of Puligny peeks through in the nervous, steely finish. It’s definitely more than an average village wine.
