TN: 2011 PYCM Chassagne Montrachet 1er Les Chenevottes

From a mixed case I got from wine cellarage including some trezin, 07 mp, and other premier cru and village from 07-11.

Star bright light yellow, no premox here.

Beautiful nose of white peach, honeysuckle and hay. Gained power on the palate after half an hour or so. Nice acidity and long languorous finish. Just a lovely wine. One bottle of this left.

I hastily drank thru all my 2008 - 2014 PYCM wines in the course of a couple years. They were all delicious, but most were painfully young, and I was painfully aware premox can pop up anywhere and I didn't want to miss their glory if it did happen.

Down the gullet they all went, thanks for sharing and sparking the memory.

painful is a good descriptor on a couple levels. The wines have so much extract and acidity that the intensity hurts drinking young. It also pains one to realize the missed potential by not aging. Finally, the increased pricing pains one also! Pain, pain, pain. Hurt me more!

I felt like the chenevottes was drinking pretty well this week.

I had the 2012 version of this last night. Also astounding stuff. While still plenty young, it seemed like a great drinking window. The only sacrifice in drinking now would be the empty bottle you're left with.
