Chassagne Morgeots, Vincent Girardin 2014
All but invisible wood easily allows the aromas of petrol, white orchard fruit and lavender to shine. There is excellent volume and mid-palate concentration to the powerful yet caressing medium weight plus flavors that are opulent to the point of being almost unctuous yet the supporting acidity is sufficient to maintain the balance on the saline-inflected finale. If you like big, rich and succulent white burgs, this would be a good choice. Drink: 2020+

Light straw-yellow. Deep yellow peach and smoky oak on the nose, along with a slightly nectar-like fruit salad quality. Lemon and peach flavors show good intensity but an element of reduction gives the middle palate a slightly edgy, blocky character. This rather firm midweight still needs to absorb its acidity and gain in nuance. No shortage of energy or length though.

Bright pale lemon colour in the glass, with a juicy, ripe, soft and smooth stone fruits. Peaches, pears, and a light, savoury spiciness are all in harmony. The palate is packed with this same fruit and though the acidity is fresh there is ample ripeness and a soft, round texture that makes this ideal for pulling corks in its youth. Generous and smooth, with light creaminess and a savoury biscuity length, it will be delicious over the next 3-5 years.
