Grand Cru Montrachet
2014 Montrachet: (from a .89 ha parcel of Puligny vines). Though there is a hint of unabsorbed SO2 present on the otherwise expressive and actually quite elegant nose that features notes of lemon rind, spiced pear, white peach and plenty of floral scents. The serious and striking rich flavors are imposingly scaled as well as impressively concentrated and while obvious overtly powerful, they are also seductively textured before culminating in an explosive yet impeccably well-balanced finish.
