guy amiot et fils chassagne-montrachet vielles vignes red

Found in Leclerc supermarket in Beaune – was relatively cheap, but how much(?), I don’t remember…
2005 Guy Amiot, Chassagne-Montrachet (Rouge) Vielles Vignes try to find this wine...
For the vintage it’s a modestly coloured medium, medium-plus cherry red. The nose has some depth, and pulls you in with faint toasted bread and bouquet garni. Intense, with slightly grainy tannin and with good understated acidity followed by another dimension of dark fruit and a little oak on the mid-palate. The finish is savoury with a long undertow of creamy dark fruit. If not totally sophisticated it balances with real personality. This is a wine that delivers on both personality and value. It’s really rather good.
Rebuy – Yes
