Quick White Burg: 2006 Blain Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet

Busy weekend, with not much time for cooking or serious wine drinking. One quick note on a nice white Burgundy from Saturday night. Thankfully, this Chassagne from Blain Gagnard was premox free. Rather reticent at first, the wine took some time to express itself. It was cold too, at first. With time, a honeyed-melon fruit with rather rich weight in the mouth. Terrific overall mouthfeel, but it's not entirely interesting. I needed more cut. Slight warmth on the finish. Good wine, and a decent value in the end. I'd drink again.
