Tasting Notes

Allen Meadows, Score: 92

This is the first wine to display noticeable SO2 and it's enough to dominate the nose at present. There is impressive richness to the broad-shouldered yet refined and elegant medium-bodied flavors that brim with plenty of palate coating dry extract. Despite the succulence of the mid-palate there is excellent delineation on the citrus-infused, intense and moderately dry finish. Like the Caillerets this is not quite as complex as I believe that it will be with time in bottle so it would be best to allow this at least 5 years of bottle age first.

Region

Chassagne-Montrachet, White Burgundy

The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet can be difficult to distinguish from Puligny. At their most typical they are slightly fleshier and more hedonistic, but are often just as mineral and refined making the two almost inseparable. When distinguishable, they offer notes of honeysuckle, lime blossom and honey. Many have become quite approachable when young. It is larger than Puligny with vineyards totalling over 330 hectares. Though it shares both the grand cru vineyards of Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachet, it has sole ownership of the miniscule Criots Bâtard Montrachet. Similar to Puligny, Chassagne also grows Pinot Noir, which can be austere when young. A small amount of red Chassagne is also made.
