90+ points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Fagot's finest red, the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge reveals aromas of rich plummy fruit, cassis and earthy soil tones, framed by a touch of toasty new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and chewy, with good concentration and depth at the core. It's a hearty, characterful red that will evolve nicely in bottle."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Fagot family has been located in the small village of Corpeau since 1860. Just outside Chassagne-Montrachet, it is located near some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Cote de Beaune, so it would be fair to say that wine is in the family’s blood. Jean-Charles is part of the 5th generation of Fagots in the area and the third generation to own vineyard acreage in Chassagne-Montrachet. On his estate vineyards, Jean-Charles employs lutte raisonée, a method of growing in which chemical intervention is employed only when necessary. The wines are vinified traditionally and naturally, utilizing oak foudres and 12-14 month long aging periods in the Fagot cellars. The Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge is made entirely from estate fruit.
