This is a wine of great richness, breadth, and length. Its deep, fleshy, medium-bodied personality offers awesome layers of minerals and quartz. Pure, detailed and ripe, it is a candidate for drinking between 2008 and 2017. - PR collapse

Burghound, July 2004
Tight yet fragrant aromas of stunning complexity reveal hints of peach, pear and a trace of wood spice, leading to large-scaled, extremely ripe flavors that stain the palate with wave after wave of sappy extract... expand Tight yet fragrant aromas of stunning complexity reveal hints of peach, pear and a trace of wood spice, leading to large-scaled, extremely ripe flavors that stain the palate with wave after wave of sappy extract. Exceptionally powerful and very masculine, this is a very backward wine today with impressive focus and precision and it will require a minimum of 5 to 7 years of cellar time to arrive at its peak, though it should be capable of lasting a good deal longer. collapse

Powerful, concentrated and high-toned, with a penetrating quality for a wine from this cellar. A dense, saline style of Montrachet, not currently showing its sweetness or fruit. The strong new oak component (both barrels were new) gives the finish a slightly bitter quality on the back end. Not showing much early sex appeal, although it displayed more flavor intensity with aeration. Also tasted: Chassagne-Montrachet*. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse
