    Description

    Montrachet 2005
    Marquis de Laguiche, J. Drouhin
    12lbsl, 1spc, owc
    Bottle (12)
    "A gorgeously fresh and highly complex yet still rather primary white flower and notably ripe orchard fruit nose introduces broad-shouldered and powerful though refined flavors that retain excellent cut and terrific detail on the perfectly well-balanced and strongly lingering finish. There is so much dry extract present that this has a chewy texture on the vibrant, driving and explosive finale. It's abundantly clear that this is very much on the way up and this is a while that will require another 4 to 6 years to arrive at its peak. The other aspect that I very much admire about the '05 Monty is how light on its feet it is because some '05 whites can be a bit ponderous, this is really quite graceful." (95pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec 2011)
