    Montrachet 1996
    Marquis de Laguiche, J. Drouhin
    owc
    Bottle (12)
    "Classic white burg aromas of immense breadth and depth feature white flower notes, minerals and knockout complexity while leading to big, rich yet delineated flavors that have near perfect balance. In short, this is flat out superb with an intensity, complexity, depth and stony minerality that is something special to behold as the length lasts for minutes. This this will easily hold for another 20 years, perhaps longer and based on mutiple recent bottles this appears to be close to having arrived at its full potential. Even so, 30 minutes of air before serving would be beneficial." (94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, March 2008)
