Ratings and Tasting Notes:

AM93-95 DON'T MISS! A discreet but not invisible application of wood frames a ripe and quite phenolic nose of both yellow and white orchard fruit where added breadth is present in an array of spice and floral elements. There is superb size, weight, punch and intensity to the big-bodied, suave and overtly powerful flavors that possess really strong underlying material, all wrapped in a superbly long finish. This is an excellent Montrachet and one of the better vintages for this wine in some time. Note: from two tiny parcels of vines on the Chassagne side totaling only .09 ha planted in 1923 that have never been worked by tractor because the slope is so steep and thus the vines are worked only by hand. Planted entirely to le vrai chardonnay and the parcels are part of the old Dents de Chien vineyard that were included as part of Montrachet as a result of an agreement reached in Beaune in 1921; aged in 100% new wood
