Gagnard-Delagrange, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er cru ‘La Boudriotte’, France, 2017
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Boudriotte is a definite success this year, bursting from the glass with a fragrant bouquet of citrus blossoms, honeycomb, dried flowers, peaches and pears. on the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with an open-knit core of fruit and succulent acids. This will be hard to resist in its youth.
Most of the vineyards of Gagnard-Delagrange have been handed down to their two daughters. The domaine, however, retains 7.4 acres of premier crus in Chassagne-Montrachet as well as two small parcels that Marie-Josèphe tends herself: Chassagne Village and a small vineyard of Passetoutgrain called Les Farges.
Chassagne-Montrachet La Boudriotte 1er Cru is located on the grounds of the Morgeot Abbey and is technically a subsection of Morgeot. Boudriotte itself is made up of six individual lieux-dits, all of which may also be bottled as Morgeot 1er Cru. Gagnard-Delagrange makes nine barrels of La Boudriotte, blending from old vines in three different sections of this gently sloping, east-facing vineyard.
