Joseph Drouhin Chassagne Montrachet 2019
|France, Burgundy, Chassagne-Montrachet
The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Village has a bouquet similar to the Puligny 2019, quite terse at first, reserved, then opening gradually with hints of yellow fruit and white flowers. The palate is well balanced with a rounded texture, hints of apricot and yellow plum, and some baking powder notes toward the finish. Fine length here, and plenty of charm to boot.
Exhibiting aromas of pear, orange oil, nutmeg and white flowers, the 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Village is medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, with a tangier, more delicate profile than this year's rich, enveloping Puligny.
