2006 Domaine Marquis de Laguiche (Joseph Drouhin) Montrachet Grand Cru

SKU #1168150 94-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Don't miss!* As good and refined as several of the foregoing wines are, this is the clear class of the cellar with moderate wood notes framing a fresh, intense and airy nose that sports impressive aromatic breadth while merging into exceptionally rich and intense full-bodied flavors that possess seemingly buckets of dry extract which gives the finish a textured and naturally sweet character. A wine of power yet excellent energy and focus and this too is both quite primary and youthfully austere at present. A potentially great Drouhin Montrachet. Drink: 2016+ Inner quote mark (7/2008)

93-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Montrachet Marquies de Laguiche (about to be bottled when I tasted it) is predictably richer and creamier than the other wines in Drouhin’s 2006 collection, but also more penetrating, vibrant, and thought-provoking. White peach, nut oils, bittersweet hyacinth and iris floral notes, along with hints of wet stone and bitter notes of fruit pit that compliment its sense of sweet ripeness, make for an exceptionally complex and harmonious whole, whose layering reflects the eight surgical passes over this vineyard that constituted its 2006 harvest. Even here, there is a relatively obvious toasty, spicy note of oak, but it is well-integrated into the long, enveloping finish. No doubt this will evolve fascinatingly over the coming decade.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Reticent, pure aromas of stone fruits, crushed rock, minerals and violet, plus a whiff of dried fruits. Large-scaled, rich and sweet, with lovely inner-mouth floral character lifting the flavor of perfectly ripe peach. A thick, broad, wonderfully harmonious wine with very well-judged oak (one-third new) for its fruit. The long, perfumed finish throws off notes of minerals and spices. This was bottled in April of 2008, whereas the previous wines were all bottled last fall. 93(+?) points Inner quote mark (10/2008)
