Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange

About the Producer

Region: Chassagne-Montrachet

Established in 1959 when Jacques Gagnard married Marie-Josèphe Delagrange, Gagnard-Delagrange is one of Chassagne-Montrachet’s best domaines. After Jacques’ death in 2009, Marie-Josèphe and their grandson Marc-Antonin Blain took over the remaining three hectares. A talented winemaker, Marc-Antonin worked in the cellar alongside his grandfather for three years learning the traditional style of the domaine – elegantly refreshing wines with great expression of the terroir. The approach remains traditional but a number of innovations have been made in recent years. Competing grasses and plants have been introduced between the vines to force the roots deep into the limestone. In the cellar, pressed fruit goes through a spontaneous fermentation on the lees and the wines are aged in barrels for 15 months with around 20% new oak for the Premier Crus and 30% for Grand Cru. The 2020 began earlier than planned on 21st August to maintain acidity. The resulting whites offer wonderful intensity and fantastic freshness making this another top-quality vintage.

Tasting Notes

By James Snoxell, Fine Wine Buyer

2020 Chassagne-Montrachet
£180 per 6 bottle case in bond

Attractive and energetic, with a floral bouquet of peaches and honeysuckle, supple stone fruit flavours are balanced by a lively mineral note. Displaying good balance and intensity, this is always excellent in terms of quality and value. Drink from 2023.

2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot
£245 per 6 bottle case in bond

Very expressive with lovely length, this reveals scents of green pears, orchard fruits and summer flowers. Peachy stone fruits are balanced by a salty mineral freshness on the palate with a seasoning of white pepper on the finish. Drink from 2025.

2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Boudriotte
£245 per 6 bottle case in bond

More energetic than the Morgeot, delicate aromas of white flowers and freshly cut green apples are followed by a pure fruited palate with mouthwatering stone fruit flavours. This wine shows real purpose and a great sense of direction. Drink from 2025.

2020 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru
£845 per 6 bottle case in bond

Multi-layered with an enveloping floral bouquet and scents of freshly baked bread and delicate spices, the palate is full of juicy white peach and zesty citrus fruits underscored by a refreshing oyster shell minerality. Showing superb depth and freshness, this has the potential for serious cellaring. Drink from 2029.

2020 Bourgogne Passetoutgrains
£65 per 6 bottle case in bond

A delightful Passetoutgrains with hedgerow fruit aromas leading to an appealing palate with a crunchy core of redcurrant and blackberry flavours. Delicious for youthful drinking. Drink from 2022.
