Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chenevottes" 2004, Philippe Colin
I'm often surprised at the value on offer from some mid-range producers in Chassagne compared to their more superior cousins in Puligny. This 2004 Chenevottes 1er Cru has a tremendous classic nose of almonds, pain grille, rich lemon pie and lemon rind. Smooth and creamy on the palate it served as a perfect companion to giant prawns pan-fried in olive oil and dusted with a gremolata. Further supports my view that white Burgundy producers could do no wrong in the cool 2004 vintage.
