Joseph-Drouhin-Chassagne-Montrachet-Embazees-2016

Joseph Drouhin, Chassagne Montrachet Embazees, 2016

“(not touched by frost): Pale yellow. Pure, expressive aromas of pear, apple, spices, lichee, menthol and white flowers. Silky and ripe but lively too, with its ripe pear flavor conveying a glyceral texture without any excess weight. Finishes with lovely tactile persistence. This fruit was picked near 13% potential alcohol and was not chaptalized, noted Faure-Brac, adding that if Drouhin had waited any longer to harvest, the acidity level would have plunged even farther (it’s 3.7 grams per liter following the malolactic fermentation).”
- Vinous (90-93 points)
