Coffinet-Duvernay Chassagne Montrachet Blanchots-Dessus 1er Cru 2020 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Coffinet-Duvernay has a tiny slice of this superb premier cru, which continues south from Montrachet.
An intense, effusive bouquet ranges from toasted brioche to grilled hazelnuts, dried apricot and lemon peel with just a hint of truffle. Despite the discrete development, this is still lively and fresh on the palate with an elegance and finesse that is almost sublime. The texture is waxy and dense but never heavy, and the balance leads to an interminable finish. The vines are 60 years old and belie their classification as 'only' village-level. This is amazing wine.—Charles Curtis MW, Decanter
