The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru has quite an austere bouquet, backward and sultry at first, then hints of lemon zest, Conference pear and light earthy aromas emerging with time. The fresh, saline palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Initially, it misses a little finesse and precision toward the lemongrass-tinged finish, but returning after 10 minutes, I find a degree of elegance and harmony that wins me over. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune. (Neal Martin, Vinous, August 2021)
