Montrachet 2006
    1ssos due to overfill, ocb
    Bottle (3)

    "In contrast to the expressiveness of the Bâtard, this is reserved to the point of reluctance though aggressive swirling coaxes shy aromas of white flower, subtle oak, green apple and spiced peach to emerge before dissolving into big, rich and ultra intense big-bodied flavors that remain a study in refinement, all wrapped in a huge, palate staining and explosive finish. This is a Monty that is almost impossibly fine given the sheer power in evidence. I have noticed that while the Blain Monty is almost always the best wine in the cellar, it rarely dwarfs the Criots and Bâtard. However in 2006, it's no contest and this is potentially a truly great Montrachet as everything is in place to allow this to age for a long time." (95 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #31, July 2008)
