Pale green-yellow. Subtle aromas of pear, peach, menthol and white flowers, with good limey lift; very Chassagne! Silky, bright and tactile, with refreshing flavors of citrus peel, white flowers and menthol lifted on the back by a stony element. This energetic premier cru really spreads out on the palate and leaves the mouth feeling refreshed.

Succulent yellow stone fruits, lemon, spices and flowers meld together in a rich, resonant Burgundy of notable depth. The 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chaumées impresses for its texture and complexity. I expect it will develop nicely for at least the next handful of years, acquiring even more body and oiliness along the way.
