2008 Maltroye Chassagne Montrachet Grandes Ruchottes

"A subtle trace of pain grillé adds nuance to the perfumed ripe peach and apricot aromas that express a bit less citrus influence than usual. The fresh, naturally sweet and unusually refined middle weight flavors are really quite sophisticated compared to the flavor profile that one typically finds in a classic Ruchottes, all wrapped in a mouth coating, admirably intense and bone dry finish. This is a very serious, even brooding wine but if you have the patience and like the mix of a sweet mid-palate with old school acidity, it is recommended." [+]
