2013 Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet "Les Chaumees"
***Highly Recommended*** Rich and creamy, this white features apple, lemon cake, citronella and toasted spice aromas and flavors. Beautifully put together, with the vibrant intensity of the vintage, ending with an expansive, complex aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2027. (BS)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
A subtle application of wood serves as a backdrop for the mostly white orchard fruit and lemongrass aromas. The middle weight flavors possess a seductive texture thanks to the abundant dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm acid spine on the beautifully lingering finish. This balanced effort should drink well young if desired.
Lovely restrained fragrance here – the slight smoky/mineral character allowing the fruit to shine. Pure, lively and still so elegant on the palate. This has real class. Finishes long and creamy to hold the freshness in check. Delicious, even near the end of a long tasting. GV (JH)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pear, spices and a suggestion of horseradish on the nose. Spicy and a bit edgy in the mouth, with flavors of peach, underripe pear and pepper. Not yet expansive in the middle palate. A wine of only moderate ripeness.
