Good pale, bright yellow. Aromas of peach nectar, orange, marzipan and spices. Densely packed, savory and fine-grained, with peach fuzz and mineral flavors lifted by a melony quality. This smooth, rich, horizontal wine really spreads out to saturate the palate. Finishes with terrific lift and length but no austerity. My sample held up very well for 48 hours in the recorked bottle.

The 2011 Montrachet Grand Cru from Marquis de Laguiche is an absolute |stonker.| It has a tight, linear, focused flinty bouquet that exhibits an almost indescribable level of delineation. It almost takes your breath away! The palate is brilliantly poised, a balletic Montrachet with a killer seam of acidity and subtle citric notes toward the finish that is very persistent in the mouth. There are no obvious flavors here - this is more about the energy of this infant Montrachet that is almost too good to cellar.

There is still a touch of wood remaining on the beautifully complex and wonderfully elegant aromas of spice, floral and white orchard fruit. There is stunning size, weight and sheer punch to the imposingly scaled, cool and admirably pure flavors that possessed an opulent mouth feel before culminating in an explosive and hugely long finish. This is breathtaking in its intensity and should amply reward at least a 15 years of cellar time in magnum format.
