Been a while since I’ve had the 17. Nose of flint, green apples and pears. Beautiful purity and perfect ripeness. Ethereal minerals. Concentrated, dense and salty. Wow. What salinity this has picked up. Awesome purity. Just so structured and pure. AmazIng focus and linearity. Just an epic epic finish. So lean yet so luscious. A contradiction in the best possible ways. Best bottle of this yet. Texture is like icing on a cake. Amazingly saline and mineral and cot damn that finish doesn’t give up! So long. Just an unreal bottle. Reference point. A benchmark. A wine even Mr. Bean will drink.

Literally next to Chassagne by a few yards. One of the best value White burgs I’ve ever had. Just a stunning wine. Exuberant nose of Apple and pear with huge minerality. Wow. Amazingly clean and dripping with purity. Palate has laser like precision and wonderful acidity and almost a sweetness from the intense minerality and fruit. So complex and juicy with intense structure. What grace and elegance and density. An amazing wine and value. With air it gets gorgeously mineral and super refined with wonderful compactness and just stunningly well made.

Nothing to add to my last note. Excellent, and is to Chassagne as the Boisson-Vadot BB is to Meursault.

Just gorgeous bourgogne blanc, but I think this is Chassagne in all but name (Cassaneas is the ancient name for Chassagne). On the nose, sweet fruit at first, but becomes more taut: lemon, slathered with minerals, sweet lime. On the palate, ultra-focused acidity, crystalline lemon and lime, sour apple. Lovelt mouthfeel and a very focused and refreshing finish. Fantastic. Better than the 17 Dancer Bourgogne Blanc, which shows a bit more overt oak.

Outrageous.

Nose is mineral and lemon zest with a. A hint of lime. Super vibrant. Almost sweet minerals.

Palate is wonderfully mineral. Gods lemon juice. Almost a bit old school 1er cru Chablis.

As always ... flawless.

Very good village chassagne quality.

Sweet minerals on the nose.

Palate is very clean. Definitely a mineral bomb. Lemon pith .. sweet lemon pith. Aerated lemon zest. Dense but in a cerebral way. Laser ground dusty minerals. Almost mineral spice. Terrific palate roundness. Hits all parts of the palate.

This is NOT a pop and pour. It needs 30-60 minutes. Treat it like a high end village wine.
