1985 Michel Colin-Deléger et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet (11/17/2011)
The nose has a little honey from bees that have landed on plenty of lavender. There are citrus notes, smoky minerals and a light whiff of butter. Some toasty development is also here but its unfair to call it toast as its quite posh, posh enough in fact to be called pain grille and while we’re wanking on the mushroom notes were redolent of champignons de Paris. In the mouth the sweet vinous things are just drying off but what is left is energetic and engaging. One tastes a little almond, some truffles, butter and lemon juice. It finishes with good cut and is quite splendid village white Burgundy.
