gilles bouton 2009 (red) chassagne les voillenots dessous

2009 Gilles Bouton, Chassagne-Montrachet Les Voillenots Dessous
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has depth plus a range of top-notes taht immediately have me thinking of Chassagne; dark red fruit of some clarity augmented with Chassagne herbs. In the mouth this starts short of a little sweetness and showing ahint of astringency. Aeration opens it up with a little more sweetness, less astringency and and interesting depth. Before aeration I might have guessed a bourgogne, given time this was an interesting village and not one you might expect comes from the easy-drinking 09 vintage. I really enjoy the last half of this bottle and must remember to open the next one an hour earlier!
