There are nine barrels of the 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot), a broad-shouldered, powerful wine that offers up aromas of pear, white flowers, buttered citrus and warm bread. On the palate, it's full-bodied, layered and fleshy, with a rounded, muscular profile and a long, resonant finish.
Beautiful pale primrose colour. As you would expect this takes time to emerge from its cocoon of majesty. A little banana and a few spices, not really relevant. Grand tension at the start on the palate, and happily at the finish too with a super ripe sumptuous wealth of fruit in between. Tasted: November 2019
