Chassagne-Montrachet 2007 Joseph Drouhin rating

Chassagne-Montrachet, 2007, Joseph Drouhin, Burgundy, France

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.
