P & L Borgeot 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru - Les Chenevottes, Burgundy
The Les Chenevottes vineyard is right across the street from Burgundy’s most famous and coveted vineyard, Le Montrachet and while obviously not Le Montrachet this is a wine of power and finesse. Spicy, creamy, punchy with crispy quince and ripe pears. Layered and complex in my notes I wrote, “Still wearing braces but when they come off, what a stunning smile this is going to have” which is to say, it could use a little time or a solid decant. I would devour this with fish in creamy lemon and butter sauce, lobster, gooey cheese, scallops or with someone that gets chills when a wine captivates you.
