Domaine Bader-Mimeur Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet Red 2017
A deep ruby color with a nose that must be ventilated to reveal crisp aromas of sour cherries, blackberries, a subtle presence of the undergrowth, a delicate mouthfeel with a young and tight tannin structure, and a fragrant, slightly firm finish that augurs well for the best.
100% Pinot Noir
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.
