Wine Critic Reviews:

(Montrachet “Marquis de Laguiche”- Maison Joseph Drouhin) The 2015 Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet is a dead ringer for the 1992 version when it was young, and that was one absolutely beautiful bottle to drink in its prime! The bouquet is ripe, pure and very complex, offering up scents of pear, apple, crème patissière, lemon zest, a beautiful base of chalky soil tones, fresh almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and powerfully constructed this year, but with seamless balance, lovely acids and a very, very long, focused and absolutely dazzling finish. I suspect, if this ages alongside of its 1992 predecessor, then it will be at its most beautiful over the first decade of its life in bottle. (Drink between 2016-2035)

Love the density to this with dried-apple, pear and stone character. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Very exciting.

(a blend of parcels; some of these vines are now being replanted): Deep aromas of white peach, gunflint, clove, iodine and white pepper. Penetrating, spicy wine with terrific mineral spine and thrust. Expands impressively in the mouth, conveying a strong impression of dry extract and energy. Nothing fat or heavy about this Montrachet--and no easy sweetness either. Delivers a captivating balance of fruit, minerality and acidity and finishes with resounding length and serious kick.

Vinous Media | 95 VM
An impressive mix of peach, citronella, honey, butter and baking spice flavors are matched to a creamy texture in this opulent white, backed by a lively structure, terrific harmony and a long, smooth aftertaste that echoes the fruit, honey and spice notes. Drink now through 2028. 150 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 95 WS
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. *Don't Miss*

The 2015 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru was stubbornly backward and broody on the nose: hints of yellow flower and struck flint. Nosing this felt like I was disturbing its prenatal slumber. The palate had more to say. It is well balanced with a brush of honey on the entry, a keen thread of acidity, a hint of spice with a composed yet straight-laced finish that I find less expressive than the Corton-Charlemagne at the moment. Let's see how this turns out in bottle. It's a Montrachet, though that does not necessarily mean it is Drouhin's finest white this vintage.
