The Chassagne Village 2008 from Louis Carillon is a very charming wine. The bouquet is quite open, with ripe yellow fruit, fresh citrus notes – hints of grapefruit and gunpowder. The oak is well integrated in the fruit aromas. On the palate good nervy acidity but also a quite fat and ripe fruit with a slight grip from the oak. The overall impression is a very harmonious and charming wine. The vintage really suits the rich style. No a very complex wine, and not quite as focused as Ramonets village Chassagne. Still a really enjoyable wine.
(Drink from 2017) Very Good – 89p
