2013 Chartron et Trebuchet Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Embazees - 93 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 93 pts"This offers a tight texture, toast and spice flavors, and intense juicy acidity. With a firm structure and concentration, it has potential for long-term aging. The yellow fruits are beginning to open up while the more citric character is already giving the wine great freshness. Drink from 2018.
