Not surprisingly, here the nose is completely different with a very ripe nose of resin, yellow orchard fruit and earth nuances that is trimmed in a light touch of wood before exposing rich, delicious, powerful and mouth coating flavors that offer impressive depth and length for a villages level wine. This is well worth a look.
Tasting note: There is enough reduction present to all but completely mask what appears to be earthy yellow fruit underneath the funk. There is good intensity to the powerful large-scaled flavors that possess a distinct malic acid tang on the energetic finish. This seems to have the richness and mid-palate concentration to eventually stand up to the firm acid spine but for the moment, the acidity has the upper hand.
The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers impresses for its pointed, vibrant minerality and overall focus. Crushed rocks, flowers, chamomile and white stone fruits are nicely layered. In 2010, the Vergers is classy and polished, yet also a bit subdued in its personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
