Tasting note

2019 Mark Haisma Chassagne Montrachet

Light blonde colour. A very fragrant aroma with subtle earthy notes and hazelnuts. Already in the nose, the wine appears buttery and creamy. The mouthfeel is lush, creamy and mineral. However, paired with a present acidity. This gives the wine balance. On the palate, I have grapefruit, almonds and a slight vanilla sweetness. The finish is long. A really outstanding Chardonnay that is already a lot of fun to drink. But I think it will still develop beautifully over the next 5-7 years. DM93-94.

Drink from 2022 through 2029.

93Wines with a rating of DM91 to DM93 are exceptionally good. These are wines that are not just well-made but which have a character of their own that makes them stand out. These wines offer a level of complexity that we can spend a long time with if we want to. In WSET terms, wines with a DM93 rating tend to be at the lower end of a 3.5 WSET score.

3.0Wines with a 3.0 WSET rating are clearly 'very good' wines according to the WSET scoring system, where we consider balance (B), intensity (I), length (L) and complexity (C). In terms of my personal rating system, wines with a WSET score of 3.0 usually get 91 to 92 DM points.
/ 4.0
4Wines with a rating of 4 stars are excellent wines in their category. They are almost at the top of their peer group in terms of quality.

Jasper Morris of inspired me to use his 'Five Star Scale' in my tasting notes, too. The limitation of the standard 100-point scale is that in certain appellation hierarchies, such as Burgundy village versus premier cru, the lower-end wines will typically score less than the wines higher up the hierarchy. The five star scale therefore wants to compare a wine to its peers from the same category. It allows for very well-made wines to stand out.
