The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru la Romanée is broody and much more taciturn than the Caillerets, which is typical according to Céline. There are limestone scents here, touches of wet granite. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry and then it fans out with lightly honeyed citrus fruit. It remains focused, feels long and tender in the mouth, though perhaps the Caillerets just has the edge apropos complexity. Whatever, you still would not kick this out of bed in the morning.

A beautifully nuanced and highly complex nose offers up notes of ripe white peach, green apple, orange peel and subtle spice hints. There is equally good purity to the rich, focused and notably firm flavors that possess excellent intensity and delineation on the impressively long finale. This is lovely and refined but lacks the same mid-palate concentration as the very best here. To be sure this is by no means unduly lean but it does need to flesh out somewhat as it ages.
