Marquis de Laguiche, J. Drouhin
"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)
