Gagnard Delagrange, Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc, Burgundy, France, 2019
Overview of the Wine
Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange was created in 1959 with the marriage of Jacques Gagnard to Marie-Josèphe Delagrange. After the death of Jacques in 2009, Marie-Josèphe runs the domaine with the help of their grandson, Marc-Antonin Blain. Marc-Antonin worked in the cellar alongside Jacques for three years and learned the traditional style that Gagnard-Delagrange is known for.
Most of the vineyards of Gagnard-Delagrange have been handed down to their two daughters. The domaine, however, retains 7.4 acres of premier crus in Chassagne-Montrachet as well as two small parcels that Marie-Josèphe tends herself: Chassagne Village and a small vineyard of Passetoutgrain called Les Farges.
Chassagne-Montrachet lies towards the southern end of the Côte de Beaune and is famous for its white wines, although half of its total plantings are in red. The wines from this village benefit from ideal exposure and limestone soils.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The white wines of Chassagne-Montrachet can resemble those of its neighbor, Puligny. Both are tense with acidity, although Chassagne can sometimes be a little softer and broader. Both show crisp apple and citrus flavors, but some Chassagnes surprise with an unexpected red fruit note.
