Suggestion from November 25 2015
Wine: 2007 Chassagne-Montrachet "Encégnières"
Producer: Domaine Marc Colin
Comment: Almost invisible SO2. This is bigger than its Puligny counterpart but trades size for elegance. The resin and floral aromas evidence traces of earth and herb, both of which are reflected by the bigger and richer medium plus weight flavors that possess good power and punch on the lingering and sappy finish. A qualitative choice.
Score: 90 Drink: 2012+
