Jean-Marc produces a remarkable red Chassagne-Montrachet from a hectare of 60-year-old vines, and the 2016 is noteworthy in its complexity—particularly for a villages-level wine. Far more structured than the Santenay above, this nonetheless offers a similar purity of fruit, plus a gently earthy, brambly edge which speaks clearly of its Chassagne-Montrachet origins. 100% whole-cluster.

BH 86-89 Points: Here too there is just enough wood to merit mentioning on the freshly turned earth and pepper-inflected aromas of primarily dark cherry. The relatively full-bodied flavors possess good mid-palate density though the moderately rustic and austere finale flashes a touch of dryness.
