Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche (0.75 L)
Here the wood treatment is no longer subtle though it stops short of fighting with the wonderfully broad-ranging nose of lemon confit, jasmine tea, acacia blossom and an abundance of spice elements. There is superb density and almost painful intensity to the palate staining big-bodied flavors that deliver massive persistence on the perfectly balanced finale. This strikingly pretty Montrachet is indisputably constructed for the very long haul, and I would recommend not touching a bottle for at least ten years. In sum, this is a stunning wine of class and grace.
