The Chassagne-Montrachet Les Macherelles 2010 from Jean-Claude Bachelet is a delightful effort. In the bouquet lively and ripe yellow fruit – presented by a citrus infused Chassagne minerality and a decent touch of oak. On the palate quite weighty fruit – pure and crisp – focused by a powerful acidity and a lovely minerality from this relatively unknown terroir located under Les Vergers. This is a classic, pure and transparent Chassagne – love the energy and 2010 power … gorgeous.

Blanchots Dessus seen from south Blanchot Dessus is a small and relatively unknown vineyard with few owners – somewhat overlooked compared to its more famours nighbours Montrachet and Criots-Batard Montrachet. But what is the history of this ...
- WineHog rating system – more than points My aim with the Winehog is unchanged, but I have for some time wanted a stronger focus on the hedonistic pleasure and simple enjoyment of drinking Burgundies.
