14 months in oak. Surprisingly sweet nose, almost a touch of caramel/honey. Rich and complex already on the palate – ripe lemon, tight and deep and long, notable concentration. (JH)

The 2014 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru was picked on September 18 and 19, and spends 14 months in cask. It has a rich, quite audacious bouquet with scents of clear honey, dried apricot, white chocolate and even a licorice-tinged nose that I don’t feel has the finesse of the 2014 Corton-Charlemagne. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of spice on the entry, rounded in the mouth with Meursault-like walnut and hazelnut, spicy on the long finish but never quite developing the mineralité that I was expecting. I would actually prefer to re-taste this before offering a mark.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2015
