Chassagne-Montrachet Update

11Feb08

OK, so first of all, it’s Morgeot, not Mougeots, as I wrote in my earlier post. And I speak the language — what’s going to happen to me when I get to Germany and Austria?
The good news is, the wine was a resounding success, one of the favorites of our group. Here’s my tasting note:
The wine is a clear, medium lemon color with gold highlights, fading to a watery rim. The nose is clean and youthful, with medium-plus intensity notes of citrus, peach, apricot, ripe pear and a touch of honey. The wine is dry, with medium-plus acidity, body and alcohol with peach, apricot, butter and hazelnut on the palate. The shows some development, and the length is medium. The quality is very good to excellent, with clean, ripe fruit and subtle oak. Drink now or age 10 years or more.
At $48 it’s not cheap, but a fairly decent value for Burgundy.
