    Montrachet 2000
    Marquis de Laguiche, J. Drouhin
    6lbsl, 2bsl, ocb
    Bottle (12)
    "The initial signs of maturity are now present though there is still good freshness to the aromas of perfumed white flowers nuanced with touches of honey and crushed dried herbs followed by wonderfully complex, intense and relatively fine if approachable flavors that deliver excellent length. This is not especially big or powerful but it's extremely classy and more than passingly stylish. As to drinkability, we were all surprised at how forward the flavors were and while there is no rush, I would be drinking this now and over the next decade. A fine if not spectacular showing for this wine and I am honestly a bit surprised at how drinkable this is at only eight years of age; note that the forward character was definitely not premature oxidation as the nose was clean and fresh." (92pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, July 2008)
