Suggestion from January 28 2015
Wine: 2007 Chassagne-Montrachet
Producer: Maison Joseph Drouhin
Comment: While this doesn't have the overall refinement of the Puligny, there is even more depth and breadth with a pungent nose of herb resin, rose petal and soil tones that are picked up by the frank, rich and generous flavors that are borderline rustic yet display excellent finishing depth on the intense, crisp and racy finale. Recommended.
