Loius Lequin Chassagne Montrachet 2001

Opened this Burg Red over a lazy Saturday evening... you know, like all wines guru said, All roads leads to Burgundy..I have been feeding Demona with new world reds then slowly in Bordeaux, Spanish and Italian reds... and now, she is slowly but steadily loving the burgundian style of understated, subtle but elegant Pinot Noir. Good for more wine discussion but bad for the wallet as Burgundy are notorious for their price/quality ratio...

Anyway, back to the Louis Lequin Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot Premier Cru 2001@50SGD:
Nose: Typical cherry, slowly infused with brown tea after some aeration. Ended with some steel note after prolong airing.
Palate: Clean, light body but with some bitter sappish tannins at the end palate. Front palate was subtle cherry. Not complex but thoroughly enjoyable quaffers. Enjoyable and fantastic value at this price for a burg...
