Domaine Michel Colin-Déleger et Fils, Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Blanc 1er Cru 2000

Deleger Chassagne Morgeot 2000 #1

A medium green-gold color.  Rounded nose: slightly leesy yellow orchard fruit, Chassagne herb and distilled walnut.  A chalky custard on the palate, generous and fullish: butter sauteed pear, apricot kernel.  An interesting wine.  At first, we thought typical Chassagne Morgeot – decent fruit, a bit ponderous and four-square, not as racy or complex as we’d like.  But after the first hour this firmed up nicely, coming into focus, attaining greater poise and showing more of its verdant Chassagne character.  A nice surprise: this was last bottle on the case and at first I thought we ha pushed this a bit too far past its window (we would say Colin-Deleger is not our first choice for extended cellaring).   Not for keeping, though.  Drink soon.
