    A ripe and fresh if distinctly reticent nose displays elegant and complex aromas of acacia blossom, white peach and a pretty array of citrus nuances. The silky and exceptionally rich full-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that confers a wonderfully textured, indeed almost chewy mouth feel onto the palate coating, serious and naturally sweet finish that delivers outstanding persistence. This is not a huge Montrachet though the Drouhin version rarely is massive but I very much like the graceful delivery and impeccable sense of balance. 2012 is a genuinely lovely vintage for this storied wine.

    The 2012 Montrachet Grand Cru was picked over different tries depending upon vine age and grape ripeness between September 22 and 25. It has a strict bouquet, very stony and tertiary at first, but opening with aeration to reveal scents of Alpine stream and dewy grass. The palate is extremely well-balanced and clearly more powerful and complex than the Criots-Batard-Montrachet. Patently there is great depth here: very pure with hints of marmalade and Seville oranges furnishing the long, persistent finish. Excellent.
