Candied apples, poached pears, and hints of tangerine can be discerned in the tangy, medium-bodied 2000 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche's personality. This well-made wine exhibits exceptional harmony in its fat yet vivacious personality. Citrus fruits are interspersed with minerals, flowers, and apples in its outstanding character.

As is usually the case with the Drouhin Montrachet, this is much more discreet and reserved in character than the Bƒtard. A bit of vigorous swirling though reveals an exquisite, heady perfume of white flowers, touch of honey and crushed dried herbs followed by wonderfully complex, intense and relatively fine flavors. This is not especially big or powerful and it does not deliver the sheer volume and richness of the Bƒtard. Rather, it is understated and refined though this is not to suggest that there is not good weight here as this is a relatively big Montrachet by the usual Drouhin standards. A very solid if not truly spectacular showing.
