Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche (0.75 L)
An overtly spicy nose possesses really lovely layering with its combination of white peach, lemon rind, jasmine tea, soft oak and pretty floral nuances. Once again there is a strikingly sophisticated texture to the dense and sleekly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract while buffering the firm acid spine shaping the hugely long finale. As is often the case with the Drouhin Montrachet, this is a big but very classy wine that marries power with refinement.
