Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes 2018 Joseph Colin
|Classification||Premier Cru Classe|
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Beaune|
From old vines that routinely produce shot berries, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes exhibits notes of musky peach, honeycomb and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and concentrated, with a layered core and a long, delicately perfumed finish. Colin told me that this cuvée took almost eight months to ferment, which no doubt built additional texture into the wine.
