- 2002 Louis Jadot Chassagne-Montrachet - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet (4/13/2006)
Slightly gold. The nose is a touch oaky, but not over-oaked, with nuts and lemon and even that hint of the bacon I often find in apellations with Montrachet in the name. The palate is like a coiled up spring: tight and with much energy in reserve. Lovely acidity backs up ripe fruit but this is a savoury rather than a fruit forward wine. There is much citrus - this is very young. The aftertaste is long and it opens up like the cliché of the peacock's tail and it is even a touch mineral unlike the taste itself. Very good.
