This is the first time I have seen this chassagne-montrachet but not the last. The 2006, it is caramel honey, aged and very rich, dense colored, superbly concentrated for 2006. The vintage was difficult, a heat wave in July,
yield-reducing hailstorms, and then a cold, wet August, rot was avoided by selective harvesting. In September, the weather was warm and breezy. This white is unique, the color that of a young d’Yquem, it has still staying power showing age but very vibrant.
This wine was sipped over the bright skies in the garden of Don Alfonso 1890. These are those wines that you never forget, they have a lasting impression, people, places and things.
