RATINGS

...aromas of green apple and roasted nuts lead to massive, marvelously intense, muscular flavors of simply incredible complexity and palate staining force. Quite elegant and remarkably well balanced for such a massive wine...

...a very deep, floral wine with terrific verve and acid cut. Lots of potential here.

91-93The Wine Advocate

The ripe apple, mineral, and toast-scented 2000 Montrachet is a concentrated, intense, and deep wine. It reveals an appealing vinous quality, loads of spiced pear flavors...finish is exceptionally long, loaded with flavor...

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is renowned as one of the world’s truly extraordinary Chardonnay vineyards. Along with its three neighboring vineyards, Chevalier-Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet, Le Montrachet is a highly prestigious Grand Cru. Though Le Montrachet is usually associated with the Puligny-Montrachet appellation, almost half the famous vineyard lies in the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation just to the south. Le Montrachet is a 20-acre vineyard located on a steep, southern and southeastern slope at 260 meters above sea level. The soil is limestone and clay mixed with pebbles. The drainage is excellent and it is considered an ideal vineyard site. Until the French Revolution the vineyard was owned by a single family. Today the largest landholders are Marquis de Laguiche (whose wines are vinifed and marketed by Joseph Drouhin) with 5 acres; Baron Thenard (wines sold by Roland Remoissenet et Fils) 4.5 acres; and Bouchard Pere et Fils, 2.2 acres.

TYPE
