Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru

2014 Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru....$599.99 
(available in OWC 6 pack cases)
Firm reduction completely dominates the nose at present. On the plus side there is excellent concentration to the beautifully well-delineated broad-shouldered flavors that possess a wonderfully refined mouth feel while delivering huge length on the impeccably well-balanced finale. As Drouhin's Montrachet often is, this is a wine of refinement and grace and while it is by no means lacks power or punch, it is much like the Corton-Charlemagne in that it is sleek and classy with a sneaky long finish.
Rated 93-96/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound
