Wonderful and expansive. On the nose, mint, lush open knit lemon confit, white pepper, slate. Finely knit acidity that gives balance to a huge plush end palate. Butter popcorn with a bright line of acidity. Mint sharpness and light. Less integrated than the lafon alongside

Medium gold. Tight nose compared to the Niellon next to it. Notes of citrus, herbal/mint, almond paste, earth, apricot, wet stone. Complex, almost odd in the mouth. Sneaky acidity. With hours of air this gradually opened up. Great last sip.

Tasted blind, from magnum. Light to medium gold, heavy in the glass. Wow! nose. Notes of citrus and spearmint, wet stone, lemon creme. Later in the night, some peach, pear, vanilla, iodine and limestone show up with the spearmint constant and pleasant to the nose. Massive acidity. With so much mint, I guess 89 Ramonet BBM (but alas I should have picked up this is the full Monty!). Opened and decanted at noon we're told... at 9pm this was just hitting it's stride. I've had Leflaive Montrachet, Raveneau Clos and Coche CC from great years, and this is right up there in the top white's I've ever had. What a treat!! (M's 60th bday 2nd of 14)

M’s bday dinner (5/12). Tasted blind. Light to medium gold. Notes of rich citrus fruit, lemon, apples, petrol/minerals, gravel, some spice and a little white truffle. Rich in the mouth with great structure. Chewy. Amazing mouth feel with a long finish. Loved this, an all time top W Burg for me, but the 92 Rav Clos provided just a little more emotion for me over the evening.

Layer after layer of nuttiness and orange tiny amounts of oxygen complex fig and burnt lemon peel. Wow!! Old Montrachet - yes it is a Merry Christmas!!

Le Montrachet. !!! A shattering wine, beyond compare. Oak is forefront, and absolutely delicious. Bulletproof wine, we hope. One for the record book. Imported by Diageo Château and Estates.
