2018 Chassagne Montrachet

A shiny gold colour for the Chassagne, A nose of white flowers and fresh butter.On the palate the usual suspects of Chassagne, a very rich structure of which this appelation is so famous for, it fills the mouth for a long time with a mix of citrus fruits and ripe apricots and butter again. The best of richness and yet mineral, an amazing wine, it’s best expression would come with white meat in a mushroom sauce.
