Domaine Jean Chartron Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Cailleret 2014
|Brand||Domaine Jean Chartron|
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.
