Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" 2008, Guy Amiot
I confess that having tasted many fine bottles from Domaine AMIOT Guy I am a fan. What a joy to taste this wine blind and still find favour. A medium yellow, starts on a pleasant egg custard, then these initial aromas waft away as a classic citrus and lemon tart bouquet comes to the fore. The final nose at this stage is a blend of Granny Smith apples, Cox's apples and a soupcon of russet apples. Integrated, citrus, classic minerality, rounded out by good fruit, enjoyable length and an edge of quartz. On a par with the Paul Pillot Chassagne 1er Cru 2008but made in a different style.
