Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos Saint Jean" 2007, Fontaine-Gagnard

This Chassagne, the sixth of the wines tasted blind, starts on an orangey note and moves on to pear even a touch of the dreaded (by wine-makers) asparagus. Shows the classic 2007 characteristics on the palate: mineral, elegant, stylish, refined, linear and zappy. This is far better than the Bernard Morey 2007. This vintage was not one that had the fruit to support significant amounts of new oak.
