2014 Pierre Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Baudines"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 ChassagneMontrachet 1er Cru les Baudines has a curiously Meursault-like bouquet, thanks to a tincture of hazelnut and smoke that evolves with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a keen thread of acidity, lively and saline in the mouth with a twist of citrus lemon on the focused finish. I like the bitter edge here. This is a lovely Chassagne-Montrachet. (NM)
Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of yellow plum and lemon. At once tactile and juicy in the mouth, showing superb definition and chewy minerality to the lemon and floral flavors. Still youthfully tight but finishes savory, perfumed and long, with excellent lift. This cool, high site typically does very well in the warmer years, noted Colin-Morey. (ST)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
This too is attractively fresh and bright with its elegant, cool and pure nose of green apple, lemon zest and white flower scents. There is excellent intensity and delineation to the overtly mineral-inflected flavors that deliver fine length on the markedly dry but not really austere finale.
The Morgeot of altitude – power and finesse. Back to wonderful texture and round satin layer on the nervy expression of Chassagne. Spicy and shows very well. Great transparency. Refined. Very appetising. 17.5/20 points (JR)
