With their dense, clay-based soils, Chassagne’s lower lying climats are ideally suited to reds. This wine comes from a parcel of vines planted in the 1960s, a 1.06-hectare plot in the middle of the village. Again, Lamy worked with roughly 60% whole bunches, raised the cuvée in used barrels and did not sulphur the wines at all until bottling. Olivier Lamy’s reds are getting more and more precise and offering more and more finesse. This is a perfect example of this reality and yet again, it is outstanding value.
Outstanding, Top value. “A spicy, fresh and pepper-inflected nose presents primarily an array of dark berry fruit. The delicious, vibrant and solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess unusually good depth and persistence for a Chassagne villages. This is excellent for what it is and highly recommended.” 90-92 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
“Notes of sweet red berries, plums, spices and petals introduce Lamy's 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet La Goujonne, a medium-bodied, bright and fleshy wine built around lively acids and powdery tannins. A touch finer-boned than the more overtly muscular 2018, it is well worth seeking out.” 89-91 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
