Wine Description:
Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge is a red wine from the French region of Burgundy. Chassagne-Montrachet is more known for the production of white wines but it also produces a smaller volume of red wine. The wines are usually for earlier drinking. This example, from a family-owned producer, was made entirely from Pinot Noir that was picked early and then subjected to cold maceration to maximise the fruit flavors without etracting any unripe tannins. The result is a supple beetroot and cherry pit scented red with silky tannins and a medium body. It is well suited dishes based on game brids or serving as an introduction to the red wines of Brugundy. Read more

Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

The vineyards, perched heroically along the steep slopes of the Sil and Bibei rivers, yield grapes imbued with authentic Galician character. As Xaras is a symphony of Mencía grapes sourced from vineyards flanking the Jares River, nestled amid granitic and schist soils with quartzite accents. This wine undergoes meticulous vinification, with whole grape bunches macerating extensively before fermenting in stainless steel tanks. The aging process, a blend of concrete tanks and French oak barrels, further refines its essence, culminating in a wine of unparalleled elegance and depth.
