Domaine Jean Chartron Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Cailleret 2014


SKU 11372


From this great terroir, nuances of lime tree and liquorice. While the oak is present in this young wine , it shows lovely ripened yellow fruit fragrances . The end of 2016 would be a good time to discover this wine.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, Chartron's 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Cailleret had a very broody, slightly disjointed nose. The oak feels as if it is singing from a different hymn sheet than the fruit. The palate is quite malic and terse on the entry; sharp Granny Smith apples and a dash of spice, quite linear in style. It does not quite deliver the complexity I was hoping for on the bitter finish, yet there is sufficient nervosité locked into this wine to keep me coming back.
