One producer who expresses more than others the spirit of Chassagne-Montrachet. With pure, elegant wines that are always approachable in youth but have an incredible capacity of ageing and developing in the cellar for decades. Jean-Marc and Claudine Blain consistently produce some exemplary wines at village level and release some of the most sought-after Grand Crus from their tiny holdings of Caillerets.
Floral notes of ripe honey-blossoms on the nose, with softer acidity and a haunting, graceful finish, there is a clear step up here as we move into top gear. There is tension and nervosity that re-emerges after the initial lure and a tingling sensation that tantalises long after the wine has disappeared. Drink from 2013.more
