The 2013 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Gain has a more exotic almond and coconut-scented bouquet than the Les Chaumees, although at the moment not quite the same delineation or minerality. The palate is smooth and with a touch of viscosity, a keen thread of acidity slicing through an attractive, slightly honeyed, generous finish that is nicely focused. I might be tempted to drink this earlier than the other crus, but it will still give a lot of pleasure. (NM)
A deft application of wood sets off an airy mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit along with hints of rosemary oil and resin. There is a lovely texture to the medium-bodied flavors that possess more mid-palate concentration as well as better depth on the balanced, delicious and nicely vibrant finale.
Pale yellow. Very reticent, mineral-driven nose hints at pear, citrus peel and wild herbs. Silky on entry, then more taut in the middle palate than the Vergers, showing a strong rocky character but less in the way of fruit. This very dry, uncompromising wine will need more time to harmonize in the bottle and reveal its underlying complexity. 90+? (ST)
