Lucien Le Moine Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Caillerets 2015

Chassagne-Montrachet Caillerets is defined by minerality. It is a very classy wine, with lots of dustiness. It’s the wine in Chassagne that you can’t totally pin down with an easy description, and that’s why some consider it a Grand Cru level. Minerality is the main point – little white stones, lots of limestone. Like the Meursault Perrieres of Chasagne-Montrachet.

“Reduction presently dominates the underlying fruit. The notably finer and even more mineral-inflected flavors possess a lacy yet punchy mouth feel while exhibiting sneaky long finish that also flashes a touch of dryness. In this case though it seems more likely that the dryness will dissipate with a few years of bottle age.”

“Aromas of apple, spices, marzipan and iodine convey a distinctly flinty minerality. Dense, thick and backward, with its lovely sucrosité buffered by sheer thickness of material. The wine’s mouthfilling opulence is given shape and lift by crushed stone and noble herbs, but today this massive, rather Montrachet-like Caillerets comes across as lower-pitched than the La Romanée. Really clings to the palate on the chewy, rising aftertaste. This is a bit inscrutable today but will probably equal the La Romanée in quality.”
