Belland Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Pitois blanc 2019
Roger and Julie Belland are 5th and 6th generation growers in Santenay – their wines are perennial favorites among our readers, offering early drinking and friendly pricetags. Belland’s 2019s are magnificent, as classy and supple as anything they’ve produced.
The 2019 Pitois blanc has considerable concentration and intensity, and while it will need a bit of time to round out, it will be excellent. There is more minerality and stoniness mixed in with the fruit here, and the nose includes floral notes of white peach flower. This white wine is focused and serious, and should amply reward cellaring. Morris agreed, awarding 93 points and finding “really significant weight to this, and in balance,” concluding “substantial and very long.”
