Domaine Bader-Mimeur Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 2017
Clear clear gold color, very frank nose, floral notes, sweet spices, nice intensity, very frank attack with a lot of volume and expression, freshness and aroma in a delicate spicy atmosphere.
The estate began in the 11th century. During the 14th century, It was owned by J. de Chaissaigne, when the name for the estate was established. Nothing noteworthy happened for next few hundred years until the French Revolution. The estate was auctioned off in pieces. A wine trader from Masson Dubois meticulously reconstructed the estate, acquiring all land bit by bit. In 1919, Charles Mimeur purchased the estate and it has been in his family ever since. The family has a couple of wine shops in Paris, where most of their wines are sold. They supplement the domaine vineyard holdings with purchased grapes from a few highly acclaimed vineyards.

|Still young, this wood-aged wine is showing toasty flavors while hinting at the fruit potential. The ripe apple and bright acidity will be balanced by the rich texture, the minerality and the tangy aftertaste. Wait until 2022.|
