The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chaumees “Clos de la Truffiere” comes from a 0.71-hectare parcel on shallow soils, the oldest vines planted in the 1950s. It has a fragrant, rocky bouquet with scents of citrus peel, dried honey and a dash of spice, all gradually unfolding in the glass (indeed, this needs more coaxing than the other crus.) The palate is very harmonious on the entry, smooth with just a hint of viscosity. It builds in the mouth with orange zest and dried mango towards a delicately spiced finish: lemongrass and a touch of fish oil, before fanning out on the persistent finish. This is very composed and just brimming over with flavor. ||You should always appreciate Burgundy winemakers who agree to meet pesky writers like me at 9.00am on a Saturday meeting, when they ought to be lying in bed with a flaky croissant and “Le Monde”. Still, Francois Jouard was there at his winery opposite the church in Chassagne, not far from Pierre-Yves Colin, ready to show me through his 2012. These were picked from 22 September and delivered a decent 30 hectoliters per hectare – still below average but not as bad as some other producers. These were a very respectable set of Chassagne wines that deliver plenty of craftsmanship for the price. I look forward to tasting further vintages. eRobertParker.com.December, 2013
