Chassagne - Les Embrazee 1992 B. Morey
9/95. Acquired from Nuits-St. Georges Dec-94 for $20 (imported for $31 net).
Tonight a fine 1er Cru white Chassagne from a very good source. The wine
accompanied the first course of spaghetti marinara for Friday night dinner
COLOR: Pale straw, not particularly impressive.
NOSE: Good, though not overwhelming, white (B) nose with the right amount of
wood. Nuances of exotic spices, minerals stones, pears and a touch of honey.
TASTE: Complex taste that opened up after about 15 minutes. Not a very
luscious wine. A bit austere, but very elegant. Not the master of finesse too.
Still very young, lacks somewhat in harmony.
LENGTH: Surprisingly long and pleasant aftertaste. That for me is a good sign
for the future.
TEXTURE & BALANCE: Good ingredients, though not totally intermingled. Fat
texture as usual, tannins still abound and felt. Quite complex for a
Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru.
OVERALL: Very good wine though not a great one. Went better with the food than
on its own (don't they all?). Will surely be better in a year or two. Very
MARK: 16/20.aaaaaaaaBUY MORE? Yes.
