Chassagne Montrachet 1er cru Vergers, 2011, Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot
(from 60-year-old vines): Pale, bright yellow. Subtle, pure nose offers pear and white flowers. Suave on entry, then juicy and sweet in the middle, with a minty lift contributing to the impression of inner-mouth perfume. Sappy, minerally, sharply delineated Chassagne with a positive iodiney character.
This lively wine really coats the palate and lingers, without leavening any impression of undue weight.
