2000 Jean Marc Morey Cessagne-Montrachet Les Chaumees

Jean Marc Morey 2000 Cessagne Montrachet Les ChaumeesWhite Burgundy is so much fun to drink.  If I had to pick two wines it would be Cab and white Burg.  This wine is a prime example of what is great about white Burgundy; at 9 years old it is still in full swing and opened up with some additional breathing time.  The wine was savory and bright and packed a tremendous amount into each sip.  It wasn't a crazy complex wine, but seemed to know its role and was very good at what it did.

Like most (good) white Burgundies this wine had racy minerality which cut a big stripe across the palate from front to back.  The acidity puckers your cheeks, and the smokey savory characteristics follow up from back to front with a mouth filling richness that touts great wood usage.  This is a Chardonnay that is still improving with age and has tons to offer.
