A second taste

I visited [link2post id=”1410″]Domaine Vincent Dancer last summer[/link2post] and was very impressed. So when I saw some of his wines for sale from Four Walls Wine I thought they would be worth shelling out for. This is a damned-good bottle of white Burgundy, so I think I’ll be buying more…

Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru la Romanée 2002, Domaine Vincent Dancer

An opulent, expressive nose of ripe lemon fruit, rich minerality and some spice. A bit of wood is noticeable on the nose, but it seems in perfect harmony with the exotic hedonism it also displays. The palate is quite dense with good intensity and fine acidity to balance its opulence. It is big, but has real finesse and precise mineral flavours that linger with the fruit on a very impressive finish. This is a very sexy, stylish wine that I enjoy very much; for all its luxurious flavours it is not short on complexity or sophistication. The quality comment that I really want to use for this wine is that it is ‘tits’, but I am too polite and non-sexist to use the word ‘tits’ quite so gratuitously.
