The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Vergers comes from a 0.33 hectare parcel and sees around 25% new oak. It has an attractive brioche and hot buttered toast bouquet that is well defined and focused. The palate is well balanced, more understated than some of Colin’s other premier crus, but is focused and elegant with blood orange and tangerine lingering on the aftertaste. Drink this over the next decade. (NM)
Here too there is a touch of matchstick character though not so much that it diminishes the appeal of the citrus blossom, tea and lemongrass suffused nose. The slightly denser flavors possess a fleshy mouth feel and fine richness and I like the sense of vibrancy displayed by the detailed and solidly lingering finish. Note that while this refreshing effort should reward a few years of bottle age it should also be enjoyable young if desired. *Outstanding*
Subtle, pure, high-pitched aromas of peach, fresh apricot and white flowers. Not particularly fleshy but a nicely taut, linear midweight with good density to its flavors of salty minerals and white flowers. Still quite bracing on the back end and in need of some patience. (ST)
Firm, taut and linear, with flavors of white peach, apple, lemon and spice fused to the frame. The finish is a bit puckering now, but long, with a hint of stone. Be patient. (BS, Web-2016)
