2009 Moreau Bernard, Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes La GoujonneDec. 2010
All the aging in barrels, but none new. No fining or filtration. This has plenty of colour. Very nice aromas, perhaps with a hint of smoke. Round and velvety with quite dark-shaded fruit. With slowly expanding mid-palate flavours this is an excellent Bourgogne.
2007 Potel Nicolas, Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes La GoujonneJul. 2009
The nose is a little riper, a little more dense but still has good freshness. Mouth-filling, sweet acidity, concentrated. Apparently it only went through 70% of the malo, stopped and would not restatrt. There is the faint ‘prickle’ of carbon dioxide but this is none-the-less good.
1997 Lamy Hubert, Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes La GoujonneNov. 2003
Medium ruby – all the way to the rim. The nose is of cooking cherries and raspberries. Deep fruit on the palate – slightly cooked. Still quite some tannin and good acidity. This wine is very fresh and perhaps a little chunky with a medium finish. Still showing in a very young fashion. Nice wine and worth leaving another 2 or 3 years.
