Chassagne La Romanée, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard 2013
A beautifully nuanced and highly complex nose offers up notes of ripe white peach, green apple, orange peel and subtle spice hints. There is equally good purity to the rich, focused and notably firm flavors that possess excellent intensity and delineation on the impressively long finale. This is lovely and refined but lacks the same mid-palate concentration as the very best here. To be sure this is by no means unduly lean but it does need to flesh out somewhat as it ages.
