Chassagne-Montrachet "Les Enseignères" 2006, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

A second bottle tasted at the Tate Britain annual luncheon hosted by a trio of Dijon oenologists. Bright silver with green tints, lime, green asparagus, lemon and a hint of vanilla. Evolves to herbaceous aromatics. This 2006 is incredibly fresh, which is at odds with the ripe, fruity 2006 vintage. One assumes the domaine picked early to capture more freshness since there was a real risk of a honeyed, over-ripe style in 2006. Grassy, dandelions, green apple, citrus, fresh, dry. Very refreshing. An intriguing wine.
