Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanchots Dessus, 2013, Domaine Morey Coffinet
Burghound.com Tasting Notes:
Note: from a miniscule .064 ha parcel of 25+ year old vines; Blanchots-Dessus abuts Montrachet on its southern end
Here too a subtle touch of wood sets off the more floral-inflected nose that includes notes of pear, apple and white peach. The powerful, focused and still very tight broad-shouldered flavors exude plenty of minerality while coating the palate with abundant dry extract on the wonderfully long, balanced and intense finish.
Unlike the Dents de Chien this is not likely to be an attractive early drinker so patience will be required. Sweet spot Outstanding.
