Chassagne-Montrachet Vieille Vigne 2009, Jean-Charles Fagot

Earthy and brambley nose with medium intensity. Blood orange, fresh, tannin-laced. Tastes a tad over-oaked. Not a lot of oomph. Baking tray, limestone gratings and dried mussel shell. Surprisingly astringent. Not showing its full potential now, I hope it improves because a Cote de Beaune 2009 red should be rich, plump and showy like a Venezuelan beauty queen. Scores 21/30 for a Chassagne.

  1. Probably a very good balance between price and pleasure, JC Fagot is a very valuable producer
