Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The fortunate Marquis de Laguiche has the biggest holding by far of Le<br/>Montrachet with just about 2 hectares. The wine is exceptionally backward at<br/>the moment - as should perhaps be the case with a wine of this magnitude half<br/>way through its élévage - but it has a massive presence and a powerfully thick<br/>texture which indicate its future quality. Drink 2015-2025+.

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

Impressive for its regal presence on the palate, this white isn't showy, yet it demands your focus as it crosses the palate in layers of spring blossom, honeysuckle, citrus, hazelnut and mineral flavors. There's a vibrant structure, and the finish ke... Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2005 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche 750ml
