Suggestion from February 25 2015
Wine: 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet "Les Encégnières"
Producer: Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet
Comment: This offers a completely different set of aromas with hints of resin and menthol to the white orchard fruit and herb-suffused nose. There is good richness and concentration to the extract-rich flavors that possess fine power for a villages level wine as it finishes with impressive depth and length. This is also well worth considering as it definitely boxes above its weight.
Score: 89-92 Drink: 2015+
