Thomas Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 2017



The nose opens with aromas of white flowers, white peaches, wet stone minerality, lightly roasted tea and honeycomb.  The palate shows the ’17 vintage – it remains fresh and quick across the tongue, lively, and full of mouthwatering acidity.  To me, this wine is front and center classic white Burgundy – the kind that I chug like beer because it’s so refreshing.  The complexity of Chassagne-Montrachet is certainly in this bottle – I’m just too busy happily drinking to take much notice.  This wine is rested and ready to come out and play. Or, if given 10 years in the bottle, it will continue to grow in richness.
