"The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Vergers 1er Cru has a reserved bouquet at first, opening with light walnut and hazelnut scents that impart a Meursault-like allure. The palate is well balance with a lively opening, rounded and slightly honeyed in texture, good acidity with a persistent finish. Excellent." -Vinous
