2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Les Chaumées
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Beaune
- Domaine Philippe Colin
Bright, concentrated green fruits and and a very appealing approachability. Already very much `en place`.
`(less frost here; production was about 25 hectoliters per hectare): Bright yellow. Classic aromas of fresh pear and menthol. Offers noteworthy texture and depth, with sound acidity shaping and intensifying the flavors of orange, pineapple, spices and flowers. This wine clearly suffered less from the frost than a number of Colin`s other vineyards. Finishes firm but not dry, with very good persistence.` 89-91 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
