Tasting Notes

Beautiful dark ruby color. Black furits on nose, with a freshness. Rich and fat on the palate mouth with good tannins.


Manual harvesting. Sorted and 100% de-stemmed. Fermentation and maceration for about 20 days. No chaptalization. Wines set in so the wood does not dominate. MLF in casks. Wine moved using compressed air. Bottling (by gravity) after 15 months.


  • (89-91) points - "Outstanding" - Burghound: "(from a 1.06 ha parcel planted in 1950.A deft application of wood sets off the ripe and ultra-fresh aromas of plum, dark cherry, pepper and a newly turned earth. There is excellent richness to the full-bodied and relatively powerful medium-bodied flavors that brim with old vine dry extract that serves to buffer the moderately firm tannins shaping the complex and balanced finish. This isn't an elegant wine but then again that's not why one buys Chassagne villages level reds. In a word, excellent. Drink 2022+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
  • (89-91) points - Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chassagne Montrachet Rouge la Goujonne Rouge has a fragrant bouquet with plenty of redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit, well defined and showing more intensity than the Santenay. The palate is well balanced with juicy ripe tannin, crisp acidity, good density with blackcurrant and raspberry toward the focused finish. Very fine. Drink 2018-2028."- Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
