Langton’s Adventures in Wine
26 March - Chassagne-Montrachet Domaine Gagnard
Langton’s Head of Buying, Tom Portet, is currently in France with Andrew Caillard MW, visiting some of the great Domaines and Chateaux of Burgundy and Bordeaux that Langton’s is proud to be working with. His travels start in Burgundy, where spring hasn’t quite sprung yet.
Caroline Estimé (in red) makes the wonderful Jean-Noël Gagnard wines. A tasting terroir with the various rocks from her famous vineyards. As Jancis Robinson quotes “The white wines of Chassagne are noted for their steely power, less rounded than meursault when young, sometimes similar to puligny-montrachet if less floral. Good vintages from good producers such as Ramonet and the extended Colin, Gagnard, and Morey clans should age from five to ten years”
