The highest natural degree of alcohol came courtesy of the 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Cailleret at 13.5%. It has a fragrant bouquet with touches of apricot blossom and white peach that is beautifully defined. It is only with a few swirls that the mineralite surfaces. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, great tension and a poised, tense finish. This already has a sense of completeness that bodes well for the future. - Neal Martin

At once silky and stony in the mouth, showing a lovely balance between sucrosite and ripe acidity. This is fatter and fuller in bottle than it appeared to be last spring from barrel, showing a bit less nuance and cut today. Perhaps this only needs time in bottle to absorb some of its 13.5% alcohol.

This is sufficiently ripe that it flirts with exoticism yet the mélange of dried yellow orchard fruit, petrol and spice scents remain fresh and bright. There is excellent concentration and plenty of minerality that adds lift to the intense big-bodied flavors as well as the mouth coating, saline and medium dry finish. While ripe, there is good acid support that keeps everything in good balance and this should drink well young but reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time too.
