Marquis de Laguiche Joseph Drouhin, Montrachet Grand Cru 2014
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Burgundy White
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
The 2014 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru was picked on September 18 and 19, and spends 14 months in cask. It has a rich, quite audacious bouquet with scents of clear honey, dried apricot, white chocolate and even a licorice-tinged nose that I don't feel has the finesse of the 2014 Corton-Charlemagne. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of spice on the entry, rounded in the mouth with Meursault-like walnut and hazelnut, spicy on the long finish but never quite developing the mineralité that I was expecting. Tasted 2015. Neal Martin, Robert Parker.
