2x chassagne

Typical – perfect condition for this, the last white from my case of 08 Pillots – but the one with my least favourite profile due to the riper fruit and vanilla, still, rather a tasty wine. Can’t win them all…

2008 Paul Pillot, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er La Grand Montagne
Hurrah – yellow colour! The nose is fresh, ripe-fruited and with a hint of oaky-vanilla. In the mouth this has a lovely intensity, a little fatter bump of ripe fruit in the middle before fading on a great line once more. The flavour is still a little vanilla inflected. A great line of intensity, indeed tension though – yum!
Day 2: ouf! No fat, no vanilla – just fabulous wine – it turns the screw of pain re the two lost caillerets…
Rebuy – Yes But no, for obvious reasons…

2009 Gilles Bouton, Chassagne-Montrachet Les Voillenots Dessus
Deeply coloured – ooh, and what a beautiful nose of silky ripe fruit – super enticing. In the mouth, there’s now none of the rusticity of this wine when it was young – but there’s still plenty of power for a villages wine. More a pizza than a salmon wine, but really enjoyable – yum!
Rebuy – Yes
