Overview of the Wine
The Fagot family has been located in the small village of Corpeau since 1860. Just outside Chassagne-Montrachet, it is located near some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Cote de Beaune, so it would be fair to say that wine is in the family's blood. Jean-Charles is part of the 5th generation of Fagots that live in the area and the third generation to own vineyard acreage in Chassagne-Montrachet. On his estate vineyards, Jean-Charles employs lutte raisonee as a method of growing in which chemical intervention is employed only when necessary. The wines are vinified traditionally and naturally, utilizing oak foudres and 12-14 month long agin periods in the Fagot cellars.


Grape / Blend
100% Pinot Noir

Origin
Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge is made entirely from estate fruit.

Pair with poultry and cheese.

This is a structurally big Burgundy, weighty but not heavy, from old vines; it is open and fruity on the palate with a touch of graphite and a lingering, mouth-watering finish.

Product size: 750ml
