2016 LOUIS JADOT Domaine de Duc de Magenta Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle Monopole Rouge 75cl (Burgundy, France)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting - This Chassagne Montrachet offers ample fruit with dark plum and cherry mixed with earthy spice of forest floor and cocoa. Reds from Chassagne are so often overlooked but there's some magic terroir much more suited to Pinot than Chardonnay here. With 109 characters this bottle is also a candidate for longest name in the wine world.
FYI: In 2016 some producers in the region lost up to 70% of their grapes through frost and hail damage. However it doesn't mean it's not delicious. A Vagabond exclusive.
