Thanksgiving week with my in-laws.

Nose has crushed flint, unstruck wooden matches, pear skin, lightly oxidized green apple, lime peel and light barrel notes.

Palate has rich tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, ripe peach), brown butter, yellow apple, fresh brioche, saline and honey notes on the long finish. Outstanding bottle, fantastic as a Village wine can get.

Vineyards sourced: l'Ormeau, Les Essarts and Les Masures.

After all the ripe, big, tannic reds, Gambal's Chassagne Montrachet awakens the palate with lively acidity and mineralogy. #nwf15 @alexgambal
