In 1830, Arthur Barolet founded a small family business in Beaune, the capital of Burgundy. At first Barolet wines rarely found themselves in any export markets and were only known by a small number of connoisseurs. His grandson, also known as Arthur, left medicine and Paris in 1920, to take care of the family business. Today, the quality and the tradition established by the former owners continues in the 19th-century cellars of the Savigny-lès-Beaune based Domaine.
The white Chassagne-Montrachet shows a light golden colour with a rather intense nose of flowers, hot croissant or brioche and candied lemon, evolving with aging towards nuances of toasted hazelnuts and spices. The flavour is straightforward, combining freshness and character, sap and finesse. The long persistence leaves the palate with floral and baking notes.
