(from two parcels totaling .33 ha on the Chassagne side, one with 25 year old vines and the other with 45 year old vines) Quite firm and almost closed and it required a lot of coaxing to reveal fascinatingly complex aromas of pear, peach, oriental spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, rosemary and a background note of dried sage followed by flavors that are concentrated and muscular but not showy. This does a slow build from the mid-palate to an incredibly intense finish that literally lasts for minutes. Much like the Perrières, the style of this is one of understated elegance and class. I don't believe that it's quite as magnificent as the '99 but everything is here to give it a good run for its money. Give this at least a decade though it will drink well for at least two and perhaps longer.

(just fined) Deeply pitched aromas of iodine, clove and sweet oak. Thick, large-scaled and full; a voluminous, mouthfilling wine with great solidity but no excess weight. Completely different in style from the Lafon Meursaults. Still rather tightly wound and restrained, but hints at its obvious power. Very long finish throws off vibrant citrus notes.

The spice and anise-scented 2000 Montrachet is a lush, medium-bodied wine. Soft layers of creamed minerals and spices can be found in its broad, soft character. It is expansive and reveals loads of underlying minerals in its persistent finish.
