Tasting Notes

This is more evolved and certainly more expressive than the 2000 Montrachet with subtly oaky aromas of mature citrus fruit and dried flowers that give way to powerful and impressively scaled if not necessarily dense flavors that do deliver impressive purity on the marvelously long finish that is supported by a pronounced minerality and solid acid structure. To be sure, this is a perfectly good example of the appellation but it will not go down as one of the domaine's all time best efforts. For my taste, this is drinking well now and while it will certainly hold for many years to come, I don't believe that there is any futher improvement to be had.
