2016 Joseph Drouhin Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru - 1500ml
James Suckling - 95 points
Some very attractive clarity of fruit on the nose with an array of peaches, white nectarines, melons and honeysuckles. The concentration is staggering. Very, very deep and dense with great acid drive underlying the fleshy ripe fruits. A citrus, stony finish with honeysuckles, spice meat and stone fruits. Superb

Drouhin produced only a half-crop of the Laguiche Montrachet, harvesting it in three separate passages to ensure all the grapes were picked at optimal maturity, and the result is superb. Aromas of citrus zest, hazelnut, yellow orchard fruit, crème pâtissière, ripe peach, and a subtle framing of reduction precede a full-bodied, supple wine with a deep core of sappy fruit. It has impressive amplitude and dimension, and lovely cut and intensity. Elegant and complete, this is a lovely Montrachet and an impressive achievement in 2016
