The lovely, complex bouquet is the first hint that you’re in for a treat. Pear, mandarin orange and white flowers lean towards baking spice and toast. The palate is satiny and succulent, matching weight with freshness in a completely harmonious expression of the vintage. The wine advocate calls it “one of the highlights of the range.”
The 2019 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru is very promising, wafting from the glass with aromas of orange zest, honeyed pears, white flowers, citrus blossom and toasted almonds. Full-bodied, concentrated and enveloping, it's rich and layered, with huge depth at the core and a long, saline finish.
