Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chenevottes" 2004, Bernard Moreau
A second Bernard Moreau wine cheekily included in the blind tasting by the official adjudicator Jeremy. This Chassagne has a medium-to-deep yellow colour with good viscosity. There is a truely beautiful nose of marzipan, cloves and nutmeg. There is real complexity there. Bees wax notes. The aromas continue along a fascinating path into a broader profil of soft spices, cake and more spice. On the palate it has been softened by age almost becoming flabby with a hint of minerality and a slim line of acidity. I placed this as a 2005 Meursault Clos de la Barre from Lafon. Very much appreciated by the tasting team. Scores 27/30 for a Chassagne premier cru.
