Chassagne 1er Cru "Les Vides Bourses" 2009, Marc Colin
Chassagne is chock-a-block with branches of the Colin family. I wonder if they enjoy eating hake with their Chassagne whites. "Hake" being the translation of "Colin". We tasted this Chassagne as one of six premiers crus all tasted blind. The bright yellow colour announces a 2009 with an initial creamy nose and brazil nuts. The aromas are still closed and the second nose after 2 minutes in the glass is light citrus and white flower effort. Evolves to more lemon, its bright but not singing. Pleasant, balanced, tasty, medium to high acidity. Un vin vif. Enjoyed by the ten tasters but not preferred at its current state of evolution.
