Tasting Notes

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, September 2012,
    Score: 90-93

    (13.8% alcohol): Good pale yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of apricot, musky truffle and smoky oak. Fat and sweet following the Cabottes--in fact downright exotic. Seems to be passing through an oxidative phase of its elevage and a bit flat today. Very ripe and creamy in the mouth, but a tad phenolic on the back end. My range should be viewed as strictly provisional.

Region

Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is the most famous white Burgundy Grand Cru coming from a single 8 hectare vineyard which overlaps into the communes of Puligny and Chassagne. Even as far back as the 18th century the wines of Le Montrachet had to be reserved a year in advance - a distant precursor to the en primeur system. The south east facing vineyards give the vines maximum exposure to the sun which combined with the limestone soil produces epic results.
