Blanchots Dessous: terroir located in the extension of the Grand Cru "Criots Batard Montrachet". The soil is a little more clayey and deeper than its famous neighbor. Soil : Calcareous Clay
A nose which combines white flowers and fresh butter then with age evolving towards notes of honey or ripe pear. The wine is full and concentrated on the palate.
Ideal with grilled mullets or vegetables stuffed with the flesh of crab
"Blanchots Dessus, which is a village rather than premier cru parcel in this instance, lies below Criots Bâtard-Montrachet and often produces delicious wines in hotter vintages like 2017. This is very stylish for a generic Chassagne, with the focus, weight and balance of a premier cru. It’s stony and aromatic, with lovely gunflint and citrus peel notes." Tim Atkin, Decanter, 01/12/2018
"Smoky and rich, but not perhaps as opulent on the nose as their Puligny-Montrachet Les Meix. Furry, pithy texture with bitter-orange notes to finish. Has the power for the long haul." Jancis Robinson, 18/01/2019
"Clear bright pale lemon. A lovely mix of fruit, toasty barrel and the faintest touch of gunflint. Fills the mouth, maintaining a steely freshness and fine youthful bitterness. Fesh plums, very good energy and the finish has some resonance with the 1er Cru version." Jasper Morris, Jasper Morris, 01/02/2019
