1976 Bachelet-Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet Clos de la Boudriotte

The appearance is brick with a watery rim. The nose is a Burgundy potpourri with a pretty mixture of herbs, flowers and a woodsy note. The nose, despite all these dried notes, is quite bright and lifted, enhanced by a prickle of menthol. The wine is alive on the palate with plenty of acid and tannin remaining. The structure and it’s stuffing grant a lovely weight to the attack.  Post-attack however, we all found the wine to fall off rather abruptly. This wine is fully developed and pleasant to have experienced.
