Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers 1er Cru 2019 versus Chassagne Montrachet La Maltrioe 1er Cru 2019
9.25 stars
12 Jun 2021

These are two interesting plots of premier cru from Chassagne Montrachet. La Maltroie is in the south-western corner of the village, right next to the buildings of Chassagne Montrachet itself. While Les Vergers is sandwiched between Les Chaumees and Le Chenevottes premier cru plots (I have earlier reported these 2 plots tasting notes). Bouquet of Les Vergers is interesting; with some lemon sherbet and orange zest aromas. Palate of Les Vergers has a lot of weight and deep penetrating flavor, obvious new oak in play, very harmonious. La Maltrioe is quite the opposite, relatively muted on the bouquet. The content initially tasted like a village level wine, but upon careful tasting, it has lively, engaging and great finesse, it may not have the weight of Les Vergers, but it presents itself with a really different approach to a good wine.
