Price: EUR 45
Winespoint rating: 92/100
buttery, lemony, balanced
Joseph’s Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet is light in color yet fresh, well developed and full bodied. Great nose full of fruits – apples, banana, pears, bit of summer flowers, rounded with vanilla, crème brulle taste with nice lemons around it. It is annoying to wait for it to aerate. First impression – very drinkable. Balanced, nice acidity accompanied with nice oak residual aromas. Buttery and silky. Just what one expects from a great burgundy. Wine needs a while to open up and can benefit from a bit higher temperature while serving. Serving too cold can hide much of the flavors. Limestone and chalk terroir in place pushing the character of the wine forwards.
Great Burgundian which I could drink anytime. I love this wine and would definitely search for another one again.
