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.

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.
