Chassagne Caillerets, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard 2013
Pale, bright yellow. Pristine aromas of pear and crushed stone. At once intense and elegant, with terrific controlled richness to the flavors of ripe pear, apple and stone. Lovely lively energy and definition in the middle palate thanks to strong underlying minerality and the highest acidity of these 2013s at 4.2 grams per liter. Finishes perfumed and very long. A beauty in the making.

Pure, complex, exotic aroma. Real class and depth here. Grippy, nutty, very Chassagne, and palpably from a superior vineyard.
