2017 Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet PC Maltroie
Wine Spectator, 94 points
An enticing white for its tightly-grained flavors of lemon oil, citronella, sweet corn and vanilla-infused oak aromas and flavors. It’s dense and saturated, still needing a little time to relax. Best from 2021 through 2028.

Background hints of matchstick and oak toast can be found on the mildly exotic white orchard fruit aromas. There is an almost creamy texture to the round, delicious and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess good punch but somewhat limited depth, at least at present.
