I have been missing some chassagne in my life and this does the trick. Honey, pears and a touch of flint. Beautiful....

#chassagnemontrachet #premieurcru eagerly waited a couple of years to open this. First day, drank it too cold and paired it with gulf coast Grouper meunière-style which would have went better with a steely crisp Chablis. 2 days later from wine fridge, serving in a Pinot Noir bowl wine glass my experience was transformed as the wine warmed up gently on a cool sunny day. Lemon curd, ghee, almond paste, faint floral honey tones on the nose. Rich, almost oily mouthfeel, tension and mineral notes in the backseat with ascendant lemon curd, creamy meringue and ripe pear. Delicious layers of flavor from the last glass in the bottle.

Lemon zest lots of minerality. Excellent aging potential. Love it!

Happy Bastille day! 🇫🇷 This is showing too much new oak for me at the moment. Underlying material is nice if the oak eventually integrates.

Golden yellow. Very smooth, but acidic. It should be better to be kept for more years. @2480, Datong - XH, 190103-190119

Delucious minerality, lemon and depth.
