Tasting Notes

Like the BBM, this is aromatically quite restrained but elegant with its cool notes of various white orchard fruit, anise, lemon, tangerine and pretty floral wisps. The exceptionally, powerful and muscular broad-shouldered flavors also brim with sappy dry extract while exuding a subtle minerality on the relatively refined, compact and beautifully well-balanced finale. This is very backwards and particularly so for the vintage so extended patience will be necessary, but this beauty should be well-worth the wait.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (79), June 2020

Produced from purchased grapes, the 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru was showing brilliantly, soaring from the glass with aromas of vine blossom, pear, golden orchard fruit and warm bread. Full-bodied, multidimensional and layered, it's concentrated and complete, with a sumptuous core of concentrated fruit and a precise, elegantly fragrant finish.
