Tasted: Jun 11, 2017
Drink: 2023+
Tasting note: A highly reserved, riper and more complex nose offers up white orchard fruit, floral notes and a panoply of spice nuances that are trimmed in subtle oak toast. The big-bodied, dense and succulent flavors are muscular but still relatively refined before culminating in a backward and linear finish. Not surprisingly at this early juncture the palate impression is quite compact and this is going to required most of a decade to realize its full potential.

  • Domaine/Maison Joseph Drouhin 2015 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru

    Puligny Montrachet, Burgundy

    White wine from France

    Drinking window: 2021 - 2030

  • Palish bright yellow. Knockout nose combines very ripe pear, exotic hints of orange oil and tangerine, and oak and menthol notes, with a crushed-stone element emerging with aeration. Tactile, thick and fairly dry; less showy in the early going than the Clos des Mouches, boasting a firm acid/mineral spine for the year. A note of mandarin zest gives the powerful, gripping finish a touch of positive bitterness. With its 14% alcohol, this large-scaled, energetic wine is a bit inscrutable today.
