92-95 VM / 94 WA / 93 BH

A note of herbal reduction to the aromas and flavors of citrus zest, white flowers and rock. A broad, dry, large-scaled premier cru that stands out in the early going for its uncanny volume and silkiness. An outstanding rocky, floral example of its vineyard but still a baby and in need of longer élevage. Finishes with palate-dusting solidity and notes of pineapple and mint. This slow-ripening vineyard always produces wine with relatively low pH and higher acidity, like the Vergers, according to Céline Fontaine. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée is more reserved than the Caillerets, unfurling in the glass with notes of pear, crisp melon, white flowers, beeswax and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegantly satiny and multidimensional, with lovely purity, a tight-knit core and a long, mineral finish. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

Tasting note: Once again there is just a touch of exotic fruit character to the jasmine tea, bright citrus, white peach and pretty floral nuances, all of which are trimmed in a hint of oak toast. The rich, round and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors flash evident minerality on the rich but focused finish that exhibits outstanding persistence. This too will need to add depth but it has the stuffing to do so. Allen Meadows – Sweet Spot - Outstanding
