The palate's energy is what sets the 2022 Chateniere apart from the pack.  The nose is telling of quality - stone fruit, crushed rock, green apple and white florals - but again, the palate is where this wine is going to impress and surprise white Burgundy aficionados.  The breadth of the wine shows a striking similarity to a fine Puligny (along the lines of 1er Cru Champs Gains), but operating at a higher octave than its more famous neighbor.  A strong blend of citrus and orchard fruit is the core: tangerine, apple, blood orange, with some Meyer lemon.  Mid-palate shows some tingly menthol and outstanding limestone minerality.  There's a long, mouthwatering finish to close things... it's really lovely and a great showcase of both this incredible site and the Fornerot style.
