Any passionate collector of white Burgundy undoubtedly turns to Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet when looking to appreciate and expand their cellar. The infamous, aforementioned Premier Crus habitually provide a divine expression of the Chardonnay grape. Further, I have two favorites I'd like to share, within each sub region.
Le Domaine Francois Carillon, of Puligny are known for their 15 generations of farming and extensive winemaking expertise. Recognized to produce wines of racy elegance, Carillon perfectly exemplifies the Puligny terroir.
Domaine Michel Niellon of Chassagne contains predominately old vines within their few plots. The estate relies on low yields, which gives the wines intensity, but results in a low supply. This, along with Niellon’s massive following, makes securing bottles very difficult, but rewards immensely.
