A fine, cohesive white, whose peach, apple and spice flavors converge seamlessly with the plush texture. Still firm on the finish, which bodes well for future development. A lemon note lingers on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2027.
Very pale color. Refined nose combines aromas of orange, lemon, flowers and minerals complicated by a touch of oak. Soft citrus fruits on the attack, then ripe and piquant in the middle, with orange and lemon zest flavors complemented by saline stony minerality. Quite tactile and penetrating. This wine, too, has turned out very well. An outstanding performance from vines that were replanted to four clones in 2001. (ST)
*Outstanding* Here the nose is quite firmly reduced so a thorough aeration is in order if you're going to try a bottle anytime soon. By contrast there is good freshness to the remarkably rich and almost unctuous full-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a lingering finish that tightens up enough to suggest that this should repay a few years of cellar time but also drink well young.
The 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru les Vergers, matured in around 25% new wood, has more cohesion on the nose compared to the Champs Gain. For want of a better expression - there is more "Chassagne" here. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with a fine line of acidity, a palpable sense of energy with hints of orange rind and dried peach towards the tensile finish. Not bad at all. (NM)
