a few chartron 2014s…

DSC00816

An impromptu visit chez Chartron at the weekend in Puligny. Much is already sold out from 2014, what remains is thoroughly drinkable too! One bottle of 2014 Montrachet remains, but for €650 we didn’t open that one 🙂

2014 Rully Montmorans
Open, fresh, an attractive nose. Here is a lovely citrus intensity and a suggestion of salinity. Fine personality. A faint, but still attractive metallic taste in the finish – and it’s also very long – delicious.

2014 Saint Aubin 1er Les Murgers des Dents de Chien
Fresh, but with a more intense, riper lemon. More intense still, more energy, still a fine lift of energy. Really a much longer finish – this is really super wine – bravo!

I’m thinking, given their cheese content, that these bottles may have been open a day or two longer than the first ones:

2014 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Benoîtes
Certainly a fresh nose but seems cheesy to start – then it’s gone. Hmm, this is certainly a richer, but fine and fresh-flavoured – coconut perhaps in the finish. This is very tasty wine but with a more obvious oak than the chien – though only in the finish… this not only tastes great, despite its oaky impression, I can drink this very easily too…!

2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Folatières
The nose starts with a hint of cheese, like the Chassagne – but becomes more perfumed as you swirl – definitely gets nicer with glass-motion. More concentrated, penetrating flavour, agrumes, mouth-watering flavour. An intensity on the good side of painful – fine indeed!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
