Jean Marc Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru Les Baudines 2015
France >Burgundy >Chassagne Montrachet
(AG=91+) Bright yellow. Tight aromas of crushed rock and flowers are complicated by sexy red fruit suggestions of strawberry and redcurrant. At once thick and dry--in fact almost bitter-edged--displaying excellent density and richness but coming across as a bit youthfully compressed. Finishes quite firm-edged, with a metallic flinty quality. Pillot loves this wine but I found myself wanting a bit more fruit. (AM=88-91) A discreet application of wood frames a more elegant nose that mingles notes of white flowers, lemon zest, apple and a touch of spice. The succulent and obviously mineral-inflected flavors possess good energy but notably less complexity and persistence on the slightly warm and citrusy finish. This forward effort should drink well early but I didn't find it to be at its usual level.
