Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Boudriotte" 2006, Bachelet-Ramonet

"Boudriotte" can be sold as "Morgeot" so its interesting that the domaine vinifies this separately. This red Chassagne-Boudriotte 2006 has an integrated savoury nose, raspberry and strawberry with a hint of vanilla. This red Burgundy is vinified in barrels previously used for white wines without any new oak. Produced from 60 year old vines it has a potent, rich and tannic structure. Requires another couple of years to fully open up. Solid and well made.
