TASTING NOTES

"The 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru soars from the glass with an expressive bouquet of spiced pears, orange oil, white flowers, nutmeg and pastry cream. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a deep and concentrated core that's layered and textural, underpinned by lively balancing acids and concluding with a long, expansive finish." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This is also slightly leesy with a similar aromatic profile save for the fact that the spice elements are more prominent. Here too there is excellent size, weight and power to the broad-shouldered flavors that are just a bit more concentrated while delivering very fine persistence on the balanced finale. This will need to add more depth with time in bottle, but it appears to possess first-rate development potential." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 79

"The 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru comes from 0.9 hectares on the Puligny side between Romanée-Conti and Ramonet. It was picked on September 5. It has a strict, focused bouquet with a subtle marine influence (oyster shells and cockle sheds). The palate is well balanced with admirable depth and a fine bead of acidity, but it does not kick on toward the finish like some of the other Grand Crus tasted from barrel. This is strict and serious. Let’s see how it ages." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Naughty heavy bottle. Manages to dance on the head of a pin: an extra dimension of weight and density without being heavy, hot or flat. White peach, hazelnut, citrus and stones. Great length." Tim Jackson MW, JancisRobinson.com
