Chassagne Montrachet Rouge 2006

Chassagne Montrachet Rouge 2006

Too often overlooked, the red wines of Chassagne-Montrachet represent very good value. Maison Latour only selects those wines from grapes with a high natural sugar content which constitutes the most reliable indicator of maturity. The wines are fragrant with elegant cherry aromas, light to medium bodied and have full fruit flavors that develop great complexity. A typical wine for its terroir, this wine reveals delicious aromas of wild black berries, distinctly black currant. On the bouquet one can also find more gamey foxy hints, as well as coppery notes. Of an ample nature and with great length on the palate, this wine will evolve magnificently in the next two years.

Tasting Notes
The red Chassagne-Motnrachet 2006 is very much the pure expression of its terroir. It unveils aromas of red and black summer fruits and liquorice. Well-structured, ample and lingering , this wine needs a few more years to fully express its harmonious structure.
Ratings
The Buffalo News: "Chassagne Montrachet is better known for it’s white wine, so this red wine made from pinot noir is a bit of a rarity. Nice floral cherry nose, with medium bodied ripe cherry flavors, and good acidity. Easily should develop well over the next two or three years, and is a good introduction to village level red burgundies." Best from 2011 through 2016.
