Chassagne Montrachet Les Baudines 2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey
|Classification||Premier Cru Classe|
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Beaune|
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines was one of Pierre-Yves' wines to show a touch of reduction on the nose and this slightly detracted from its delineation. The palate is well balanced with fine weight in the mouth, although that element of reduction persists, therefore I advise giving it two to three years once in bottle, because a very decent Chassagne will eventually emerge.
Cask sample. Quite like Chevenottes but 50 m higher and a bit more clayey. Ripens about a week later than Chenevottes.
The Morgeot of elevation – power and finesse. Broad and golden. A real charmer on the nose. Perhaps less textured than the Chenevottes but should flatter early on. Picked last.
