1983 ramonet montrachet Burgundy White

Ramonet’s 1983 Montrachet is simply off the charts. Orange peel, almond, graphite, smoke and a hint of petrol wrap around the palate as this dazzling Burgundy shows off its class and pedigree. What a wine.Antonio Galloni | 97 AG(Domaine Ramonet Montrachet Grand Cru White) (with thanks to Dr. Michael Chen). A flat out superb nose that is obviously very ripe with botrytis hints yet there is nothing obvious or cloying about it that introduces wonderfully long, fantastically rich and complex flavors that culminate in sappy, palate staining and almost unbelievably long finish. This is drinking perfectly now yet displays absolutely no sign of tiring and should drink well for another 10 years, perhaps longer. Consistent notes.Burghound | 95 BHIt is hard to believe a 1983 could have this much natural acidity. I would not be surprised to find out that Ramonet either blocked the malolactic fermentation, or did a little magical addition of acidity to this broad-shouldered, powerful wine. At age nine, it is still backward and closed, with outstanding extract levels, admirable weight, but little complexity. This could turn out to be a terrific example of Montrachet, but I would cellar it another 4-5 years. Last Tasted 8/92Robert Parker | 90 RPVery floral, complex and spicy, this comes on big and brawny, but still manages to slim down on the finish and squeeze out an elegant flourish. Has style and power, showing lemon, pineapple and honey flavors that echo on the finish. Best from 1998 on.--Ramonet Montrachet vertical.Wine Spectator | 90 WS

2001 coche dury corton charlemagne Burgundy White

I was blown away by the power, verve and soil-driven complexity of Coche-Dury’s 2001 Corton-Charlemagne. Full yellow in color, it’s approaching maturity but shows every sign of a continuing graceful evolution in bottle. Its vibrant apple, citrus peel and brown spice aromas and flavors have been joined by deeper notes of brioche, white truffle and porcini. This wonderfully tactile, plush wine boasts compelling sweetness leavened by lively acidity, and the musky, minerally, slowly building finish begs for a side of crustaceans.Vinous Media | 97 VMThe 2001 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a rather exotic rendition of this great wine, revealing an expressive bouquet of peach, white currants, apricot preserve, oatmeal and a light framing of toasty new oak, bearing the signatures of the botrytis that marked the vintage. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, bright and ample, as structurally open-knit as the 2000 vintage but more powerful, textural and large-scaled. Like the 2000, it’s also drinking at its peak. The 2001 is a comparatively gourmand rendition of Coche’s Corton-Charlemagne that would pair well with traditional cuisine bourgeois.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95 RP(Domaine Jean-François Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru White) This has always exhibited a deep yellow color. In contrast to a lovely bottle that I enjoyed several years ago, the one in the tasting was clearly advanced with distinct notes of butterscotch. There was good minerality and verve to the broad-shouldered flavors and the advanced character remained only on the nose. As such, this was at least drinkable but the nose was definitely bothersome. Not Rated. My review from May, 2007 was: Like some (but not all) ’01s, there was a pronounced deep yellow color but absolutely no trace of oxidation to the nicely complex and slightly oaky nose that leads to rich, full and beautifully defined flavors that are drinking well now though should continue to develop positively, all wrapped in a long and stylish finish. Compared to the heights to which this wine routinely ascends, the ’01 is a very good but not truly great Corton-Charlemagne. Approachable now but it should hold at this level for several more years so there is no rush.Burghound | 92 BH

2004 coche dury meursault Burgundy White

Delivering aromas of crisp orchard fruit, buttered toast, citrus oil, hazelnuts and smoke, Coche’s 2004 Meursault Village is a medium-bodied, fine-boned wine, with terrific concentration, tangy acids and chalky structuring extract. It remains very youthful in a white Burgundy vintage which is often beginning to be quite evolved at other addresses, but that will come as no surprise to admirers of this domaine.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP(Domaine Jean-François Coche-Dury Meursault Villages White) (with thanks to Herwig Janssen). Soft mineral reduction does not materially detract from the green fruit, citrus, stone and slightly smoky nose that introduces detailed, pure and attractively intense middle weight flavors that possess excellent vibrancy on the taut, linear and refined finish. This isn’t quite as complex or concentrated as the ’02 version (see herein) but the sheer persistence is most impressive. And in the same fashion as the 2002, this has reached an inflection point of maturity where it could be enjoyed now or held for a few more years depending on how one prefers aged white burgs. For my taste, I would hold this for another 2 to 4 years but many people will find the current state of maturity to be perfect now.Burghound | 91 BH(from Narvaux; cuvee destined for the U.S. market) Very ripe aromas of candied lemon peel and nectarine. Fat, sweet and ripe, offering considerable early appeal. Very Meursault in character, from redder soil.Vinous Media | 90 VM

2005 francois raveneau chablis les clos Burgundy White

Pale yellow. Ineffable nose combines fresh pineapple, grapefruit, crushed stone and menthol. Pure, taut, extremely backward wine that’s like sucking on a mouthful of rocks today. Like a richer and even more austere version of the Montee de Tonnerre. With no obvious sweetness showing today, this is revealing more than it’s showing. Finishes very long and very dry, with a purity of mineral expression that’s rare for this vintage. Less likable today than the Valmur but even denser. This will require at least a decade of cellaring.Vinous Media | 95+ VM(Domaine François Raveneau Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru White) An incredibly pure but also incredibly backward ultra high-toned ripe floral and white pear and peach nose nuanced by subtle spice and brioche notes complements perfectly the round, intense, delineated and stony flavors that are like drinking liquefied rock, all wrapped in a textured, palate staining, austere and almost painfully intense and chewy finish. This is a bit more reserved at present than the Valmur, which is interesting because normally it’s the other way around. Either way, this has flat out great potential. (Drink starting 2013)Burghound | 95 BH(Domaine Raveneau Chablis “Clos”) At times, the Clos can be rather forbidding out of the blocks chez Raveneau, but the 2005 is utterly refined and polished. That said, it is also the most closed wine in the cellar today, and offers stunning potential to those with the patience to not open a bottle for a decade. The nose is deep and soil-driven, as it offers up notes of wet stones, flint, crystalline minerals, apples, sweet grapefruit, a streak of herbaceousness not unlike Clos des Mouches Blanc and a whisper somewhere of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and racy, with a very primary panoply of fruit coupled to amazingly complex and persistent minerality, bright acids, a rock solid core, and a very, very long, complex and tensile finish. Magnificent juice in the making. (Drink between 2017-2040)John Gilman | 95 JG

2008 coche dury meursault Burgundy White

It’s been two years since I tasted my last bottle, and Jean-François Coche’s 2008 Meursault Village is only getting better, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp green pear, citrus oil, sesame, hazelnuts and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, deep and incisive, it’s tensile and concentrated, with racy acids, terrific mid-palate volume and a long, penetrating finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93+ RP(Narvaux; Coche bottles a few different cuvees of Meursault villages, normally noting the lieu-dit only on the back label; this wine was bought by the U.S. importer) Peach and white flowers on the nose; a real essence of Meursault perfume. Then creamy-rich and sweet, with soft citrus flavors dominating. Finishes with lovely lingering sweetness of fruit. Ridiculously sexy village wine.Vinous Media | 91 VM

2009 coche dury meursault Burgundy White

The 2009 Meursault is similarly rich and tropical, but also comes across as quite young next to the 2002, which is an ever-present reminder of how these wines can age. Although the 2009 is gorgeous, if I owned it, I would try to give it more time in bottle.Antonio Galloni | 92 AGThe 2009 Meursault Villages is drinking brilliantly, wafting from the glass with a beautiful nose of preserved citrus, crisp peach, nougat and honeysuckle. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, layered and elegantly textural—glossier and more sweetly sun-kissed than the 2008 drank alongside it but bright and precise nonetheless, with beautiful energy and delineation on the finish. Given its profile, I suspect this was Coche’s bottling from Vireuils of Luchets rather than Narvaux, but he makes no indication on the label.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91 RP(Domaine Jean-François Coche-Dury Meursault Villages White) A pretty, ripe and very Meursault nose of both white and yellow orchard fruit, hazelnut and a gentle touch of wood toast leads to delicious, round, concentrated and quite generous flavors that possess excellent depth and length, particularly for a villages level wine.

2010 coche dury meursault Burgundy White

Tasted in 2021, this 2010 Meursault is still showing a bit of wood over the brightly youthful citrus fruit with nuances of hazelnut and creamery butter. It is an intensely structured wine with incredible freshness. This is a luxurious wine of immense potential, yet still not yet fully ready to drink. Try it in another five years and drink it over the following 20. Superb Meursault from an exceptional producer in a landmark year. (Drink between 2022-2045)Decanter | 96 DEC(from Vireuils-Dessous): Aromas of orange oil and wet stone. Juicy on entry, then rather strict in the middle, showing noteworthy power and tension, not to mention terrific precision of stone fruit and citrus flavors. Not yet expansive; in fact, this village wine is the closest 2010 to austere today. Owing to the low volume of grapes in 2010, Coche-Dury used 15% new oak here, vs. a normal 10%. (If you see the 2010 Bourgogne Blanc, but it: with its leesy, spicy pineapple and orange blossom flavors, its rather powerful mid-palate and its whiplash of a finish, it’s better than many Meursault botlings).Vinous Media | 92 VM(Domaine Coche-Dury Meursault Villages White) Here there is a completely different aromatic profile with its hazelnut, grilled almond, acacia blossom and yellow orchard fruit scents. There is excellent volume to the somewhat more generously proportioned flavors that are not quite as refined though I very much like the mineral character on the lemony, bone dry and borderline strict finish. This linear effort will definitely need time to unwind and flesh out on the finale. (Drink starting 2018).Burghound | 90 BHThe 2010 Meursault (Narvaux) is a gorgeous wine endowed with crystalline purity, fabulous depth and great overall balance. The long, pure finish makes it hard to move on to the next wine. As always, the Narvaux is one of several parcels that is bottled simply as Meursault, so readers will have to ask their supplier the exact provenance of their village-level Coche Meursault. Anticipated maturity: 2015+.(Not yet released)Jean-Francois Coche’s 2010s have turned out just as I hoped they would, which is to say the wines are breathtaking. On average, yields were down 40%, so these already highly coveted, rare wines are going to be even more impossible to find than usual. Coche is adamant that opening his top 2010s before age ten is a total waste, something he repeated a few times during my visit. Accordingly, Coche doesn’t plan on releasing the Corton-Charlemagne for another few years.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 90 RP

2010 domaine william fevre chablis bougros Burgundy White

A restrained nose of citrus, floral, mineral reduction and algae slides into impressively rich, powerful, serious and concentrated flavors that are almost painfully intense on the explosive and strikingly long finish. This is a classic Bougros with its robust and muscular big-bodied flavors.Burghound | 92-95 BHThe 2010 Bougros was bottled at the same time as the Vaulorent, but it too was showing very, very well at the time of my visit. The simply beautiful bouquet offers up a complex and classy mélange of apple, tart orange, lime, chalky soil tones, spring flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and racy, with great focus and balance, brisk acidity, a rock solid core of fruit and great length and grip on the still very youthful finish. (Drink between 2018 - 2050)John Gilman | 95+ JGWith 10.18 acres, Fèvre owns one-third of this grand cru, a southwest-facing hillside that produced a spherical wine locked in a Kimmeridgian limestone shell. Scents of wildflower honey and creamy Meyer lemon flavors get cut by the blunt youth of the wine’s acidity and soil character. A transmigration of fossilized oyster shells into a chardonnay of today.Wine & Spirits Magazine | 93 W&SThe 2010 Chablis Bougros is terrific in this vintage, even if the slight lack of polish this site confers to the wines is impossible to completely escape. The aromas and flavors show a crystalline purity that is highly attractive. Floral notes add a further sense of lift on the expressive finish.

2012 coche dury meursault Burgundy White

The 2012 Meursault (my sample taken from their parcel in Chaumes) has a relatively austere bouquet at first, withholding its charm and then teasing with granitic, cold stone scents. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity and then it fans out in languid fashion with the delicately spicy finish. This is sophisticated and refined.Robert Parker Neal Martin | 91 RP-NM(from Vireuils-Dessous; in the latter part of its malolactic fermentation): Sexy aromas of orange oil and brown spices. Bright and penetrating, with peach and soft citrus flavors firmed on the tactile back end by saline minerality. Really excellent texture and length for village wine. (Incidentally, don’t hesitate to snap up Coche’s 2012 Bourgogne Blanc if you can find it. This ripe, fruit-driven wine, from rocky soil around Coche’s house, is as good as most Meursault village wines. The very rich, tactile, classic Meursault Narvaux, which is usually sent to the U.S., was just at the beginning of its malo, and the Rougeot hadn’t even started at the end of May).Vinous Media | 89-91 VMThere are very mild hints of match stick and exoticism to the ripe and fresh nose of mostly yellow orchard fruit aromas that are liberally laced with floral and hazelnut nuances. There is excellent volume and outstanding concentration to the vibrant and extract-rich medium weight flavors that possess fine depth on the balanced and highly persistent citrus-inflected finish that displays a deft application of wood. This is a terrific villages and the altitude of the vineyard definitely helps the sense of vibrancy. (Drink starting 2019)Burghound | 90 BH

2013 louis jadot montrachet Burgundy White

(Maison Louis Jadot Montrachet Grand Cru White) This is restrained to the point of being almost mute and only aggressive swirling coaxes aromas of white flowers, freshly sliced citrus, pear, green apple and discreet spice elements to grudgingly emerge. There is seriously good size, weight and punch to the beautifully detailed and notably mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that, like the Corton-Charlemagne, possess a chiseled and explosively long finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. I very much like the balance and upside development potential here and about the only nit worth mentioning is just a hint of finishing warmth. Still, this should abundantly reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring. (Drink starting 2025)Burghound | 93-95 BHThe 2013 Montrachet Grand Cru, which comes from the Chassagne side, possesses a very precise bouquet that seems understated when compared to the more hedonistic Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles. This is much more demure, laid-back...nonchalant even. The palate is very precise - there is real detail here with delicate spicy notes furnishing the back end of this Montrachet that just expands toward the finish. I think this is keeping everything up its sleeve at the moment, but you cannot deny the balance and focus here.Robert Parker Neal Martin | 93-95 RP-NM(13.3% alcohol; picked late): Pale straw-yellow. Aromas of clove, iodine and white flowers are lifted by a note of lemon oil. Hugely concentrated, dense and utterly backward; not showing nearly the detail of the Chevalier-Montrachet in the early going but this is sweeter. Montrachet in the outsized Chassagne body-builder style. Really amazingly rich and massively structured for the vintage, but needs to lose some of its baby fat before it can be properly appreciated.Vinous Media | 94+ VM

2014 coche dury corton charlemagne Burgundy White

Enjoyed over dinner in Burgundy after tasting many truly lovely wines, this wine could erase your memory of anything else. It is a riveting tour-de-force, with a medium lemon-yellow colour and heady, incredibly forward aromas of ripe orchard and stone fruit with exotic spices, butter, and a bit of oak. There is fresh acidity, plenty of body and extract, and incredible finesse and elegance as well. The combination of youthful fruit, fresh acidity, and robust density carry this wine to an interminable finish.Decanter | 100 DECThe 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a wine that leaves you lost for words - never helpful in this profession. It begs the question: Why are not all Corton-Charlemagnes like this? It has a stunning bouquet with a profound mix of yellow plum, Mirabelle, Seville orange marmalade, those liquid minerals and later, scents of cold wet limestone. The palate is incredibly powerful with stunning acidity. There are multiple layers of spice-tinged citrus fruit, just a faint tinge of marzipan, wondrous umami sensation in the mouth with grilled walnut and a hint of pralines towards the finish. This represents an astonishing Corton-Charlemagne that might end up touching the imperious 2005. Readers should note that Raphael told me that the release of this will be delayed, just like the 2005 and 2010. Put it on your wish list and wait.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 99 RPThe 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was the first time I had tasted the wine in bottle after first sampling it at the domaine. It is more open than expected and displays less reduction than the 2005 tasted alongside, offering penetrating citrus peel, lanolin, crushed limestone and fragrant yellow flower scents. The palate is beautifully balanced with razor-sharp acidity and an extraordinarily saline, praline-tinged finish that electrifies the senses. It flirted with perfection in 2016 and it is still within a whisker now. Tasted at Otto’s restaurant in London.Vinous Media | 99 VMA still somewhat reticent nose grudingly speaks of discreet wood, smoky mineral reduction, petrol, green apple, white rose and spice elements. In the same vein as the nose, the dense and well-muscled broad-shouldered flavors are still moderately tightly wound while delivering an abundance of minerality on the massively persistent, highly complex and perfectly well-balanced finish that is quite dry yet not especially austere. This is sufficiently backward at present to need continued cellaring even though with say 30 or so minutes of air in a decanter, it could be approached. With that qualification duly noted, I would strongly advised holding this unicorn of a wine for another 5ish years. In a word, OK, two, absolutely brilliant.Burghound | 98 BH

2015 Coche Dury Meursault Caillerets

(25% new oak): Sexy scents of orange oil and spicy oak, plus a floral touch that struck me as more Puligny than Meursault. Dense and silky but also precise and penetrating; more a wine of finesse and delicacy than size or power. Still, there’s a fleshiness here and a singed orange note suggesting that some grapes were grilled by the sun. A wine of great individuality, finishing with an impression of strong dry extract and a whiplash of fruits and flowers.Vinous Media | 93 VM

2016 coche dury meursault perrieres Burgundy White

The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières is the most distinctive wine in the range, unfurling in the glass with notes of lemon oil, crushed chalk, tart green apple, dried white flowers and struck flint. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegantly satiny and searingly intense, with tangy acids, huge concentration and the pronouncedly mineral, stony signature that always seems to mark out this bottling. Along with Genevrières, Coche’s parcel in Perrières was largely spared by the 2016 frosts. Given its utterly classic profile, a dozen years’ patience is advised.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 97 RP(Domaine Coche-Dury Meursault "Les Perrières" 1er Cru White) Here too there is plenty of floral influence to the airy but impressively dense aromas of various white orchard fruit, citrus, oyster shell and mineral reduction-suffused nose. Like several wines in the range in 2016, the medium weight plus flavors are not only almost painfully intense but overtly powerful with outstanding minerality that really surfaces on the driving and superbly complex finale. I usually prefer the Corton-Charlemagne in most vintages but 2016 may ultimately prove to be an exception. Either way, both are superb wines and if you can find, and afford, them I unreservedly recommend buying them. (Drink starting 2031).Burghound | 96 BH(Meursault “Perrières” - Domaine Coche-Dury) There was not a whole lot of frost damage in Perrières as well in 2016, so this wine chez Coche has also turned out very classical in personality. The bouquet is stunning and still quite youthful, offering up scents of apple, pear, stony minerality, iodine, hazelnuts, orange zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full and racy in profile, with a superb core of fruit, brilliant soil signature, snappy acids and a very, long, complex and laser-like finish. Domaine Coche-Dury has made the reference point example of Perrières for as long as I can remember and their 2016 is once again, the stuff of legend! (Drink between 2023-2060).John Gilman | 96+ JG(from what Raphaël Coche described as perfect grapes, untouched by frost): Penetrating scents of crushed stone and lemon; classic Perrières! Smooth and very dense on the palate, with its flavors of crushed rock, lemon, lime, underripe pineapple, flowers and saline minerality showing great inner-mouth tension. This, too, boasts terrific dry extract. Finishes with extraordinary sappiness and rising length, like an electric shock to the palate. This wonderfully juicy, digestible wine spreads out horizontally to excite the taste buds.Vinous Media | 95+ VM

This is at once powerful yet refined and should also age well but be enjoyable young.Burghound | 89-92 BHLumpp opines that the stony, southeast-facing slopes of this lieu-dit represent Givry’s best terroir for white wine, and his 2016 Givry 1er Cru Crausot is certainly impressive, revealing fragrant aromas of white peaches and spring blossom, followed by a medium-bodied, elegantly glossy palate, with lovely purity and stony depth.

Drink or hold.James Suckling | 93 JSIt’s always interesting to compare and contrast Albert Bichot’s Clos des Mouches white with the one from Joseph Drouhin, as this comes from a slightly higher parcel on the slope. The oak is a little more clamorous here and needs more time to integrate, but this is tauter and crunchier with a little less in terms of mid-palate weight. Drinking Window 2020 - 2024.Decanter | 92 DEC(Domaine du Pavillon (Pommard) - Domaines Albert Bichot Beaune "Clos des Mouches" 1er Cru White) An overtly floral nose offers up notes of pearl, apple and citrus where the latter can also be found on the round, delicious and once again generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors that deliver perfectly good if not truly distinguished depth though I do like the length.

(Chevalier-Montrachet- Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils) Alex Moreau’s 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet is one of the most stunning white wines to be found in the vintage in the Côte de Beaune. The bouquet is pure, complete and absolutely a quintessential expression of this magical terroir, delivering a magical constellation of pear, lemon blossoms, tangerine, a touch of crème patissière, orange zest, kaleidoscopic limestone minerality and a very classy base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, pure, racy and supremely elegant, with a full-bodied and flawless format, a great core of fruit, snappy acids and a long, laser-like and beautifully complex finish. Pure magic. (Drink between 2027 - 2070)John Gilman | 98 JGThe 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is showing brilliantly, soaring from the glass with a lovely bouquet of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed chalk, orange zest, green apple and blanched almonds. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with an incisive spine of acidity, superb tension and back-end grip and a long, mineral finish. This is a magical Chevalier that realizes all the promise it hinted at in barrel.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 97 RP(the Moreaus have two 350-liter barrels of this wine, one of them new): Bright, light yellow. Classic high-pitched Chevalier-Montrachet aromas of lemon, lime, pear, white peach, lavender and white pepper. Densely packed but weightless, offering sharp definition and outstanding class to its flavors of lemon zest, crushed stone and mineral salts. This very dry, intense wine is quite tight but not hard, and its subtly mounting salty finish is hard to scrape off the palate. Alexandre Moreau will wait until at least next March to bottle this beauty.Vinous Media | 93-95 VMAs it sometimes is, the wonderfully elegant nose is restrained to the point of being almost mute and it requires aggressive swirling to finally liberate the mostly floral, citrus and white-fleshed fruit scents. There is plenty of the hallmark minerality to the big, powerful and almost painfully intense broad-shouldered flavors that deliver superb length on the impeccably well-balanced, explosive and bone dry finish that also displays a hint of quinine character. Despite all of the size, weight and intensity, this is quite classy, indeed the word silky comes to mind.Burghound | 92-95 BH

2017 joseph drouhin drouhin-vaudon chablis premier cru mont de milieu Burgundy White

The 2017 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru has more mineralité on the nose compared directly to the Sécher, attractive orange blossom and canned apricot scents emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a tang of ginger on the entry, showing impressive weight and a taut, linear, quite persistent finish. This is excellent, fulfilling the potential it showed back in June.Vinous Media | 92 VMBeautiful aromas of wet stones and limes, as well as grapefruit. The palate has a very succulent and attractive feel with lithe and linear acidity as a feature. Drink or hold.James Suckling | 92 JSAs usual, the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu is the most blocky and broad-shouldered of the domaine’s premiers crus, revealing notes of smoky citrus oil, white flowers and oyster shell, followed by a medium to full-bodied, powerful palate that’s still youthfully firm, balanced by tangy acids and concluding with a distinctly saline finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91+ RP(Maison Joseph Drouhin Chablis "Mont de Milieu" 1er Cru White) A distinct whiff of the exotic can be found on the layered and riper nose that combines notes of apricot, white peach, lychee and hint of tidal pool. Once again there is plenty of citrus influence to the bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors that possess good muscle and punch, all wrapped in an impressively powerful, long and serious finale. This youthfully austere effort is clearly built-to-age and is going to need at least some forbearance. (Drink starting 2025)Burghound | 91 BH(Chablis “Mont de Milieu”- Domaine Drouhin Vaudon) Mont de Milieu is on the Right Bank in Chablis and this sector was far more severely hit by the late April frosts than was the case across the Yonne, so yields here are decidedly lower than was the case with the estate’s Sécher, Montmains or Vaillons. The wine is more forward out of the blocks in 2017 than the Sécher, offering up a precise and inviting bouquet of lemon, green apple, limestone soil tones, spring flowers and a topnote of beeswax. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with a bright, but easy-going structural chassis, fine mid-palate depth and a long, bouncy and complex finish. This is already very tasty, but seems to have the balance to age quite well, despite not being particularly steely in terms of acidity. (Drink between 2018-2040)John Gilman | 91 JGA lift of citrus on the nose of this wine immediately sets a bright, fresh accent. The palate comes in with ripe, fresh Mirabelle abundance that enjoys the definition and texture reminiscent of white citrus pith. This wine focuses on fruit but manages to stay toned and defined.

2017 joseph drouhin montrachet marquis de laguiche Burgundy White

The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru is slightly deeper in color. This has a gorgeous bouquet of lemon thyme, orange blossom and crushed stone, all very focused, followed by an emerging touch of mintiness. The harmonious palate is powerful, ripe and slightly vanilla-y; it just lacks a little breeding and panache. A bold and brassy yet cerebral Montrachet that will need a lot of time. This surpasses all my expectations from barrel. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune.Vinous Media | 98 VMThis is youthfully restrained for now with exotic essence of lemon, lime and grapefruit. The intensity and purity of the aromas is really captivating. Strong, flinty minerals and stones, too. The palate has a very plush, richly textural and expansive feel with extremely powerful tension between exceptionally concentrated citrus fruit and extremely intense acidity. Wow! Try from 2022.James Suckling | 98 JSAs all of the vines for the Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet are on the Puligny side of the vineyard, the frost damage here in 2016 was less severe than was the case on the Chassagne side of this grand cru. Consequently, there was probably a bit less pent up energy here and the vigor was more easily harnessed in 2017. In any case, the 2017 vintage of the Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet is flat out brilliant, offering up a stunning bouquet of pear, apple, lemon, a hint of almond paste, complex, limestone minerality, crème patissière, vanillin oak and a lovely topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is deep, pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with superb nascent complexity, bright, vibrant acids and impeccable balance on the very, very long, racy and utterly classical finish. A brilliant example of Montrachet in the making.John Gilman | 97 JGThe 2017 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru was showing very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with aromas of Meyer lemon, tangerine, dried white flowers, green orchard fruit, beeswax and wet stones. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and expansive, with considerable volume and breadth at the core that’s balanced by lively acids that lend the wine energy and tension. The finish is long and pure. This is a beautifully balanced Montrachet that I expect to show very well in bottle.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94-96 RPThe Drouhins’ plantings are in the northern part of Montrachet - there’s even a plaque on the wall to show you where they begin - and were picked in three stages in 2017. This is plush and smooth, with less acidity and bite than some, but it’s spicy and dense with aromatic oak, a drizzle of honey, and pear and nectarine fruit. Drinking Window 2021 - 2027.Decanter | 95 DECThis is also quite aromatically restrained with its decidedly cool and relatively airy nose that mixes a dollop of wood toast with plenty of floral, citrus and white-fleshed fruit scents. The super-fine but intense and tautly muscular large-scaled flavors possess a subtle minerality that carries over to the gorgeously complex, persistent and balanced finish. As it should be, this is very clearly built-to-age and a wine that should enjoy an extended maturity curve.Burghound | 95 BH

2017 maison champy corton charlemagne grand cru Burgundy White

Features a beautiful fragrance of lemon, lanolin, vanilla and toasty oak, with an underlying minerally vein. This is lively and changes across the palate, building to a precise, minerally finish. Shows terrific complexity and clarity. Best from 2022 through 2032.Wine Spectator | 95 WSOnly just beginning to open up, this is a very sophisticated white Burgundy with great elegance and a sleeker body than many wines of this category. Excellent concentration, married to a cool and fresh personality, the intense mineral character driving the very long and pure finish. From vineyards under conversion to organic cultivation. Better from 2021.James Suckling | 94-95 JSSold under the generic Champy brand but from a domaine-owned parcel of 0.5ha on the Pernand-Vergelesses side of the appellation, This is a wine that’s all about freshness and precision rather than power, showing chalky crunch and bite, alluring jasmine aromas, a leesy texture and subtle wood, 25% new.Decanter | 94 DECHere too there is a moderate dollop of wood framing the cool green apple, citrus rind, mineral reduction and lychee nut scents. There is good punch to the tautly muscular if not especially dense middle weight flavors that exude evident minerality on the firm, clean and dry finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this needs to develop more depth but given the underlying structure, this has the legs in which to do so. (Drink starting 2027)Burghound | 92 BH

2017 maison pascal clement meursault les narvaux Burgundy White

The nose on this wine promises creaminess, with subtle yeastiness. The palate has ease and creamy flow, presenting a lemony, cushioned and yeasty texture. Rounded and bright, the finish leaves a vivid impression of buttermilk.Wine Enthusiast | 92 WEThe 2017 Meursault Les Narvaux is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of citrus oil and crisp Anjou pear mingled with hints of beeswax and fresh butter. Medium to full-bodied, satiny but incisive, it’s elegantly textural, with terrific depth and tension at the core, underpinned a racy spine of acidity that carries through the penetrating finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP
