Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Grande Montagne" Vieilles Vignes 2008, Bachelet-Ramonet
Green and yellow apple, lime zest, lemon meringue pie and fresh ground almond. Lovely balance, simple, white honey on mid palate and on the finish. Touch of minerality. Hay on the final nose. Very pleasant mid-week evening wine! Scores 22/30 since it is very enjoyable though not complex. Still plenty of fruit on the palate and has another year at the same level but will decline after that. Significant step up compared to the Chassagne 2008 and worth comparing with the Bâtard-Montrachet 2008.
