Light yellow. Ineffable aromas of lime leaf, white flowers, menthol and powdered stone. Silky and sweet but with lovely citrus lift to its crushed stone and mineral flavors. A juicy rather than thick 2015 with strong but harmonious acidity. Finishes saline and classically dry, with a light touch.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Vergers was mute on the nose when I tasted it from barrel, clearly not coming out to play. The palate is balanced with a lightly honeyed entry, moderate depth but needing to show a little more nervosité towards the finish. Probably best enjoyed earlier rather than later unlike some of the other Chassagnes from the domaine. I would like to see more terroir expression develop.
