champion 1998 bourgone côte chalonaise

champion bourgogne

A strong recommendation for buying decent regoinal wines and saving them for ten years – indeed saving your credit-card bill too!
1998 Michel Champion, Bourgogne Côte du Chalonaise try to find this wine...
A medium-pale, bright ruby-red. High tones and depth, apple skin, a sweeter base and a red fruit note. Nicely plump, no hard edges despite slightly elevated acidity and the remnants of tannins that were probably quite astringent when younger. This is good with food but edgy without as it has an element of unripeness that was quite engaging. Probably showing at it’s best since release and will likely peak in another year or two.
Rebuy – Maybe
