Domaine Blain-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Caillerets

This is a seven year old wine, but the colour is still light gold. Good complexity in the mouth, with citrus flavours, a hint of tropical fruit, walnuts and vanilla. The oak is quite noticeable, and more than I am used to, but the treatment is smart and adds to the mouthfeel. The wine is quite rich, but not heavy. Firm acidity drives the flavours down the palate to a fresh finish. A very good wine.

Score: 94/+++
