Dense aromas of yellow dried yellow fruit, petrol and a soft hint of flowers leads to very generous, fleshy and sappy medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth and length on the ever-so-mildly rustic finale. This isn't a wine of finesse but then again that's not why one buys a Chassagne villages.
François Carillon, brother of Jacques, succinctly described the 2013 vintage as "challenging but satisfying as I'm actually quite happy with the results. That said the growing season was frankly tough and while we weren't hit by hail the way we were in 2012, it still required some serious attention to detail. If you were lazy or missed a treatment by as little as 48 hours there would be consequences because of just how little margin for error there was. It was even worse if you were using contact products because of their propensity to easily wash off and given how much rain we had, it necessitated a lot of passages through the vines. The wines were very hard to read prior to the malos finishing but now that they have I believe that 2013 will be very popular among those who like classically styled white burgundies.""
Drink: 2019+. 88-91 points"
