Domaine Bernard Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet La Maltroie 1er Cru 2000

Morey Maltorie 2000 #2

Medium lemon yellow color.  Quite a stylish nose for a Maltroie: brioche, orchard peach, Chassagne herb, honey, with a smoky, toasted walnut overlay.  Medium-body but very open, ripe and intense.  Seductive even.  Substantial, vigorous fruit.  Very good grip and present acidity; lovely balance here.  A little more interest and transparency than Niellon’s example.  And nicely long.  Very good.  Sadly, we have had variable bottles from this case.  For the still correct ones: Now – 2016.
