Description

Olivier Leflaive Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge 2019

The season begins with a mild and dry winter, leading to an early start to the growing cycle. A significant episode of frost occurred on the Chardonnay on April 5 then on the Pinot Noir on April 14, causing a harvest loss (30% to 50%). A cooling at the beginning of June leads to capricious flowering. This causes runoff and further reduces yields while concentrating the aromas. The hot summer induces water stress in certain places which delays the maturity of the grapes. Because the berries are small and few number, the sugar level in the grapes is naturally high but the lack of water helped maintain good acidity.

Tasting note – A nose dominated by scents of cherry, gooseberry combined with more gamey and spicy notes. A good tannic structure on the palate in its youth which evolves with age towards a very tasteful structure.

Food pairings – Ideal with grilled or roasted lamb and pork.
