Thillardon Chenas Chassignol 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Chénas Chassignol is a beauty, unwinding in the glass with pretty aromas of raspberries, plums, exotic spices, mint and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, it’s deep and seamless, with fine, powdery tannins and lively acids. It concludes with a long, penetrating finish. Drink: 2021-2028. 94+ points

The Thillardon brothers continue to go from strength to strength, and they are fast emerging as one of the most exciting producers in contemporary Beaujolais. The 2019 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address and is strangely reminiscent of the domaine’s 2016s—even though the two growing seasons have very little in common. Ethereal, elegantly tightly wound and low in alcohol, they will blossom with a year in the cellar. From the last couple of vintages, this has been one of the most consistently successful addresses for low/no sulfite Beaujolais, and the wines come recommended.”
