"The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Macherelles comes from a vineyard that Jean-Baptiste feels has improved in recent years because of their approach to plowing. It has a stony, granitic nose - just a faint whiff of smoke in the background, but clearly holding itself back at the moment. The palate is harmonious and well balanced, the acidity very well judged here, enabling this Chassagne to just "flow" across the mouth. It lingers nicely with a dab of lemongrass right on the aftertaste. Lovely - this has great potential. "
