Other Reviews....
A barely perceptible whiff of the exotic can be found on the white peach, petrol, lemon zest and soft rosemary oil nuances. There is both good volume and energy to the appealingly textured medium weight flavors that possess reasonably good detail on the delicious and balanced finish. This is a quality Chassagne villages that needs to develop a bit more depth, but it should be capable of that if allowed time.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Enseigneres, which sees 15% new oak, has an appealing bouquet with touches of walnut and hazelnut lending a Meursault-like character. The well-balanced palate features clementine and light mango notes. Quite linear and strict, demonstrating fine precision toward the finish. This will be a "correct" Chassagne-Montrachet.

Neal Martin - Vinous

A light lemon streak in the pale colour. More subdued on the nose but with a suggestion of density. Which indeed it delivers especially at the back of the palate. Solid white fruit with very good texture.
