Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Macherelles" 2002, Hubert Lamy
The 2002 vintage turned out to be a fleshy year without fine minerality or lively acidity. Only the top producers such as the 2002 Puligny from Louis Carillion attained real elegance. This is a rich wine with lemon, oak vanillins, Cox's apple and tangerine marmalade. A savoury wine with vanilla flavours which ends on a slightly flat note due to the low acidity. Ideal for poulet de Bresse in cream or lambs brain with cream and cornichons. Worth comparing with the Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Clos de la Chateniere" 2002, the Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Murgers Des Dents De Chien" 2002 and the Chassagne-Montrachet "Les Voillenots" 2002 from Maroslavac-Leger.
