I rarely drink red Chassagne – why? – I love a good red Chassagne-Montrachet but still they tend to get somewhat overlooked. The red Chassagnes often offers a lot of pinot pleasure – with a lovely expressive and charming fruit and a fine minerality. The generic Chassagne village 2010 from Ramonet is certainly no exception. The bouquet offers lovely crisp fruit with red cherries and strawberries – interlinked with a quite filigree stony minerality. It’s very forward and expressive. On the palate good concentration with a delightful balance. The fruit is cool and crisp … a joyful glass of pinot. Note – drink more red Chassagne.
