Captivating aromas of lemon zest, wild herbs and menthol. Dense, saline and stuffed with fruit, with a pronounced saline quality and seriously strong acidity giving the wine terrific force for a 2011. Very young and slow to reveal itself. Gublin noted that this wine has been locked up tight from very early on. She planned to rack it in the days following my visit.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Montrachet Grand Cru 2011 from Jacques Prieur has a more powerful bouquet than the Marquis de Laguiche, although it is not quite as refined. Touches of slate start to evolve with aeration -- dried yellow flowers and hints of wild honey with time in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with well-judged acidity, a little riper and more powerful than Marc Colin’s Montrachet, but a little blunter and slightly more oxidative in style. Grilled walnut and smoke adorn the vivacious finish that is long, but just missing that killer penetration. - Neal Martin

(BH92-94 points) A wonderfully broad-ranging if slightly toasty nose is still very primary and the density of the fruit with its associated depth is sublime. There is excellent concentration to the overtly powerful, precise and muscular flavors that are big but not necessarily massive before culminating in a finish that is even more persistent than that of the Chevalier if not necessarily finer.
