Domaine Blain-Gagnard Caillerets Premier Cru Chassagne-Montrachet 1986


It's a little hard to know where to start with a wine such as this, but I'll give it a go.  Golden in colour, it has aromatics of extravagant apricot, peach, honey, yeast, biscuit and yoghurt.  The palate has long length, and a complex expression of peach and apricot flavours.  All of its component parts are in balance, and its texture velvety.  Simply glorious.
