Chassagne-Montrachet 2013, François Carillon

Dare I say it, but François Carillon makes a Chassagne in the style of a Puligny. I have observed though that most top Puligny producers do not make any Meursault. Bizarre. So at least they are open minded enough to making Chassagne. This is a superbly fine wine. Lemony, fresh, cisselé. There is lemon and apple. Its mineral, linear, classy and bright. Tangy apricot finish... the only Chassagne trait in a Puligny-style wine. I am sure would be a nightmare in a blind-tasting. Scores 24-26/30 for a Chassagne.
