2009 Gagnard Jean-Noël, Chassagne-Montrachet Cuvée L'EstiméApr. 2011
There is a core of dense and dark red fruit on the nose – with flashes of pure cherry. The flavour builds and builds; the tannin has a slight ‘grab’ but almost no astringency – this will be a super-ebulient wine in it’s youth, but perhaps wait another six months.

Medium, medium-plus colour. A width of red cherry-fruit greets your nose. Super acidity and a little astringency to slightly sticky, blocky tannins. Nice, long flavours – very nice fruit. This will need a little cellar time but will be an okay bottle.
