Tasted blind at the annual â€oeBurgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru la Romanée has a limestone-tinged bouquet, much more Puligny-like in style compared to its peers, a little reserved perhaps but growing in the glass with gunflint aromas percolating through the citrus fruit. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, well balanced, tensile and yet tightly coiled on the concentrated finish, one that says it needs 3-4 years to really show its mettle. Tasted May 2016.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2027
