    Description

    Montrachet 1996
    Bouchard Pere et Fils
    Bottle (1)


    "Pale yellow color with green tinges. Simply gorgeous and pure fruit aromatics framed in citrus and a distinct mineral component followed by strikingly delineated, complex, chiseled flavors and a finishing intensity that must be experienced to be believed. Not an especially dense wine, certainly not as dense as the massive 1995 but rather built along the lines of harmony, balance and finesse yet endowed with simply stunning elegance and persistence. This will live for decades." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2003)


    Estimate: $325 - $425.
