Tasted from bottle, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Village unwinds in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, fresh pastry, white flowers and green apple, complemented by a hint of youthful struck match. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy but reserved, it's bright and chalky, with an ample core underpinned by a tangy spine of acidity.
Pale lemon and lime, with rather an elegant, classy nose, white fruit behind, excellent texture and good acid balance. The village Chassagne offers a firm finish but with a flourish. Gracious fruit, which is not exaggerated.
