Domaine Roger Lassarat Saint-Veran ‘les mures’ 2000 (review)

89 points

Saint-Veran, Burgundy, France. 13%

Light gold. Classic reserved chardonnay and hessian aromas. This is a lovely light white burgundy, some touches of green mingle with medium-bodied fruit. Flavour without the alchohol weight and sweetness of New World chardonnay. This lacks great concentration though – match carefully to food.

Showing little sign of its six years of age. Drink over the next 4 years. it occurs to be that I have a number of good Australian chardonnays in my cellar but very few can be aged for more than six years.

  1. Certainly built for aging. This is starting to drink very well now at almost 8 years. Maybe it will blossom in the next couple of years, but I suspect not, it is a quality wine if not particularly complex. A cut above the vast majority of blowsy chardonnays.
