Item no. 123179
A full bodied, powerful, rich wine. It is a very delicate wine with almond, apple, peach, spices or even truffle aromas, and a very long finish.
The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Cailleret is rich, dense and explosive. This is pure Chassagne with bold, exuberant fruit. Juicy apricots, flowers, spices, peaches and butter flesh out as the 2010 opens up in the glass. This is an especially voluminous wine that will appeal most to readers who enjoy full, luscious white Burgundies.
This is really quite oaky with abundant wood spice and vanilla aromas fighting for center stage with the citrus and white peach scents that are nuanced by the addition of wet stone hints. There is good punch to the very rich, round and delicious flavors that possess fine volume though not the refinement that one typically finds in a classic Caillerets. To be sure, this is still very good but not truly distinguished.
