Hubert Bouzereau, Chassagne-Montrachet

"Les Blanchot Dessous," The Finest Chardonnay In Chassagne-Montrachet!

Location, location, location!

Les Blanchot Dessous is a lieu-dit (vineyard) within Chassagne-Montrachet. It is adjacent to the Grand Cru Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Not only does it neighbor these Grand Gru vineyards, but it literally butts up against them; as such, "Les Blanchot Dessous" is considered one of the finest lieu-dit in the Chassagne-Montrachet village!

You will not find a better crown-jewel within Chassagne-Montrachet. It is literally a hidden gem! Additionally, it is a 2014, a highly coveted white Burgundy vintage.

This noble terroir has created a beautifully expressive wine. Elegant with glimmering gold reflections, there are intoxicating fragrances of white flowers, honeysuckle and chamomile. The palate, full of white peach, lemon zest, apple and citrus, has mouthwatering acidity and a flinty, mineral driven edge.

Hubert Bouzereau's "Les Blanchots Dessous" Chassagne-Montrachet gives you many of the benefits of highly prized Grand Cru fruit at a fraction of the price. To put this in perspective, the wines from the bordering Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet producers range in price from $250 per bottle up to $1,000 per bottle!

Enjoy it now or cellar for another ten years. This is a highly collectible white Burgundy.

$62.95 per bottle / $755.40 per case
