What a glorious white with such length, complexity and character that changes all the time. Dried-apple, cream, pineapple and honey notes, as well as light tropical fruit and honeysuckle. It’s full-bodied and very tight...   What a glorious white with such length, complexity and character that changes all the time. Dried-apple, cream, pineapple and honey notes, as well as light tropical fruit and honeysuckle. It’s full-bodied and very tight and compact. The finish goes on for minutes with honey, flint, cream and apples. A dream. Of course, you are supposed to age this, but it’s so beautiful now.

At an enviable 2ha, the Marquis de Laguiche's holdings are the largest in the Grand Cru and have been put to good use by Véronique Drouhin and her team. This is a superb expression of one of Burgundy's greatest terroirs...   At an enviable 2ha, the Marquis de Laguiche's holdings are the largest in the Grand Cru and have been put to good use by Véronique Drouhin and her team. This is a superb expression of one of Burgundy's greatest terroirs, with wonderful citrus and stone fruit aromas, some kitchen spices and patisserie, very fine 30% new wood and remarkable palate length.

Once again there is a strikingly sophisticated texture to the dense and sleekly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract while buffering the firm acid spine shaping the hugely long finale. As is often the case with the Drouhin Montrachet, this is a big but very classy wine that marries power with refinement.
