Joseph Drouhin Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2015

$759

The 2015 Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet is a dead ringer for the 1992 version when it was young, and that was one absolutely beautiful bottle to drink in its prime! The bouquet is ripe, pure and very complex, offering up scents of pear, apple, crème patissière, lemon zest, a beautiful base of chalky soil tones, fresh almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and powerfully constructed this year, but with seamless balance, lovely acids and a very, very long, focused and absolutely dazzling finish. I suspect, if this ages alongside of its 1992 predecessor, then it will be at its most beautiful over the first decade of its life in bottle. Drink between 2016-2035. John Gilman, A View from the Cellar
