The 2016 Chassagne La Romanée from Domaine Morey-Coffinet is a true wine of the vintage. The nose is crammed with yellow and intense fruit – presumably low yileds due to the frost, and further concentrated by the old vines. A classic Chassagne – with plenty of power and intensity. On the palate intense and quite vibrant – with a intense and powerful expression. A wine that is showing it’s low yield – and offering plenty of intensity and detail.

In my view it’s ...
