Domaine Bachelet Monnot Chassagne Montrachet 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chassagne-Montrachet|
|Brand||Domaine Bachelet Monnot|
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Village is showing very well after bottling. It has a reassuringly complex, involving bouquet with scents of white flowers, honeysuckle and light menthol aromas that are, frankly, Premier Cru in quality. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity and very pure and refined, showing good depth and freshness toward the long, saline finish. I think this is one of the few cuvées from Bachelet-Monnot that will surpass the 2018.
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Village offers up notes of honeyed peach, orchard fruit, spices and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tangy and tight-knit, with appealing purity and a stony finish. This will likely flesh out with further élevage and land at the upper end of my bracketed score.
