    2014 may be the greatest White Burgundy vintage of my career and the 2014 Coffinet-Duvernay Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Fairendes" does nothing to change that opinion. The wine is everything you could want from a 5 year-old white burgundy, loaded with brilliant citrus notes and orchard fruits all nicely buffered by perfectly-integrated tannins and acidity. This wine is drinking perfectly right now and is a great example of what a fantastic vintage 2014 was and continues to be for white burgundy.
    Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2021

    At our staff Burgundy tasting, this ended up being an epiphany wine for me. Five years in from an incredible vintage, this is exactly where you want a Chassagne Montrachet to end up when you finally pull the cork. The fruit flavors of lemon meringue and bright green apple have melded beautifully, with hints of white acacia and minerals complementing. The weight and texture are just phenomenal, with the signature acidity of the vintage taking the beautiful flavors a great distance on the finish. This is one to sip slowly, and let unfold in the glass. Well worth the price.

    You can almost never ever find old Burgundy on the shelves like you can old Domestic Cab or Bordeaux. And though 2014 may not qualify as "old", once you move past a vintage in Burgundy it's very hard to find it again. That's why it's so incredible to see a 2014 back on the shelves, lauded by the K&L staff as being one of the best in our memories. This wine still carries a tremendous line of acidity, unbelievable after 5 years. It is fresh and complex, and still has years of aging potential on it. Don't miss this opportunity to go back a vintage or three in time and pick up one of the best showing wines on the shelf.

    What a pretty wine. This wine is an elegant and rich white burgundy! Inviting aromas of apples and warms spices, lead into a structured and round body on the palate and a refreshing saline finish. This 1er cru is showing beautifully.

    This is classic Chassagne. The palate is an incredibly creamy, pome fruit potpourri over lavender and lime woven into vervy mineral notes. The delicate nose only hints at the scale of the sip but is as complex, if not more, than the palate. There are not enough wines like this in the world; I'm happy to find one more.
