Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Macherelles

2016

Full east exposure. Macherelles is normally the most open upon release of Bachelet's 1er Cru. Native fermentation. Aged in French oak barrels for 24 months (15% new). 30-45 g/L sulfur added at bottling.

90-92 points
"Ultra-fresh yet still notably ripe aromas consist of white peach, citrus zest, spice and a touch of rosemary oil. Exceptionally rich, suave and generously proportioned medium weight flavors brim with sap yet there is not sense of heaviness on the balanced, complex and lingering finish. Lovely stuff and very Chassagne that will need only a few years to be approachable yet should repay 6 to 8."
