1995 Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet

($50): A little sulfury on the nose but it blows off quickly. Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot to take its place. A bit of honeysuckle and light fruit but that’s about it. Tight fruit on the palate with good acidity but there’s not a lot of complexity or concentration. Yeah, it’s a young Chassagne and may come around in time but I doubt it. Disappointing, especially given the price.
