Pale and bright, very classic 'straight' nose - and indeed the palate too is altogether classic, finer than many Morgeots, (it has a good proportion from the lieu-dit 'Fairendes', which has a bit more mineral in the soil). Fresh and pure.

(from Les Fairendes and Les Petits Clos in a roughly 50/50 proportion). There is a hint of matchstick character to the otherwise classic Chassagne aromatic profile of yellow orchard fruit, resin and an herbal/earth element. The generous, muscular and solidly well-concentrated flavors possess plenty of dry extract that serves to buffer the firm acidity and add body to the linear, firm and dry but not really austere finish. This is less fine than the Champs Gain but compensates with more volume and power. A qualitative choice. 2020+

Laurent's wife Marie-Anne inherited half of her family's property, the Pommard domaine of Pothier-Rieusset, and he and his father have now bought the other half. The wines from this domaine represent excellent value, and they age very well too, despite being attractive young. Laurent's 1992 Grandes Ruchottes came top of a tasting of wines of that vintage in 2012, ahead of some supposedly much 'grander' domaines. Laurent manages to pack in a lot alongside his running of the vineyard. He has a sophisticated microlight which he flies to all corners of France, he keeps and hunts hawks, and conducts the Chassagne brass band as well as dabbling in Mayoral duties - on top of being a father.
