Looks like I’ll be going through a white wine phase – it’s 33°C outside – let’s see how long it (both!) lasts 😉
2009 Maison Champy, Chassagne-Montrachet
Medium lemon-yellow. The nose starts with a faint soap-powder note that has me thinking more of 2010 than 2009, but there’s a warm core of ripe, green-skinned fruit too. There’s a little richness but the acidity has a good-enough balance to bring. Just also a hint of the savoury in the sweet mid-palate – very decent concentration here. Overall, this a very tasty wine which I’d happily buy again, but just missing a hint of pizzaz that might have me actively searching for it.
Rebuy – Yes
