An excellent companion to fish, shellfish, veal and poultry, especially in cream sauces. This wine can be enjoyed immediately or within five to eight years of the vintage.
Not surprisingly, here the nose is completely different with a very ripe nose of resin, yellow orchard fruit and earth nuances that is trimmed in a light touch of wood before exposing rich, delicious, powerful and mouth coating flavors that offer impressive depth and length for a villages level wine. This is well worth a look. Comments: Outstanding 89-91
The 2009 Chassagne-Montrachet caresses the palate with rich, sumptuous fruit. This textured, generous white captures the essence of Chassagne in 2009. Medium to full in body, it shows superb balance and plenty of class at this level. Approximately 15% of the fruit is premier cru.
