After yesterday’s Les Vergers I decided I was on a run…

2010 Camille-Giroud, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Tête du Clos (Blanc)
The nose is more pungent, Chassagne-style herbs, it seems brooding and quite powerful – normally a description of a red! In the mouth this is quite a ride; power and almost an element of tannin – it really reminds me of a hairy-chested red Chassagne – yet the flavours are of a white wine, and the acid balance is lovely. Maybe a hint of CO2 was contributing to that tannin-like texture – but anyway, a wine to wait for, while you drink the Les Vergers!
Rebuy – Maybe
