Chassagne-Montrachet "La Goujonne" 2004, Hubert Lamy
This is a vieilles vignes wine, which usually means higher concentration (due to lower yields of grapes per vine) and a guarantee of quality in more tricky years like 2004. Attractive cherry red, ruby tints. Hazelnut, hawthorn, warm sandstone, vanilla, black currant. The 6 years of evolution show well. Fresh black currant and victoria plum flavours on the palate married with a lively line of cherry and blood orange. A lingering touch of slightly green pinot tannins on the finish. For drinking in the next 12 months. Ideal with lamb cutlets.
