Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chaumées Clos Saint-Abdon
43a 66ca (1.08 acres)
« Les Chaumées » vineyard is located at the edge of Chassagne-Montrachet, bordering Saint-Aubin. It is the highest positioned vineyard directly above the Premier Cru « Les Vergers » and « Les Chenevottes ». « Clos Saint-Abdon » refers to this big patch of land that used to be surrounded by a wall, inside Les Chaumées. Shallow soils have a higher limestone content than clay, imparting a bracing minerality. The largest portion is 50 years old.
« Les Chaumées » is a consistent, very elegant, mineral-driven wine. Flint and smoke on the nose segue to a structured palate that showcases notes of vibrant citrus fruit and rounded edges that taper off into a focused, lingering finish.
Yo be served at 10-12°C (50-54°F).
Ageing potential: 5-7 years.
