The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets has a taut, much more backward bouquet than the La Romanée at the moment. The bouquet brings to mind a spring meadow, touches of grass clipping and wet limestone. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a killer line of acidity, perhaps just a notch more saline than the La Romanée with a marine-like, oyster shell tincture on the finish. Excellent.
