  • Tasting Notes

Description

Notes of matchstick, lemon-lime, acacia blossom and white orchard fruit aromas serve as an elegant introduction to the dense yet elegant medium weight flavors that also exude a fine bead of minerality and salinity. While this isn’t any more complex than the Grande Montagne it is slightly more persistent and a bit firmer as well. One to consider.

– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 90-93

 

Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Grandes Ruchottes had a lot of sulfur dioxide on the nose, rendering it difficult to read the terroir here. Some of it does blow off with 10-15 minutes in the glass, but it still feels rather generic. The palate offers grapefruit and quince on the entry. The acidity is nicely judged, but it is missing some complexity and nuance on the curt finish. Tasted May 2016.
