sauzet 2000 villages chassagne

oxidised2000 Etienne Sauzet, Chassagne-Montrachettry to find this wine...
Golden colour – maybe a little too golden for the vintage. The nose confirms it, oxidised – not too badly to drink, or too strident – a level that would be forgivable if it was ten years older. The palate has some width and creamy, oaky flavours of reasonable length. Despite almost good acidity there is no energy here.
Our winemaker lunch companion summed it up in one word – tired.
Rebuy – No
