Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AM=92 Sweet Spot Outstanding! There is a very mild hint of the exotic to the ripe nose that offers an interesting contrast between the dried yellow fruit, petrol, and citrus-suffused aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the impressively concentrated yet precise middle weight flavors that deliver even better length on the sappy and palate coating finish. This too will need a few years of cellaring before it will be completely ready for prime-time enjoyment.
RP=90-92 The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanee, which comes from a single hectare through the negociant part of the business, has an expressive, mineral-led bouquet with touches of Mirabelle and yellow flowers. The palate is very well defined with tangible minerality and tension, then eases back to create a more elegant, stony finish. Four barrels (one new) this year. This is recommended.
