BH96: * Don't Miss! * This ever-so-mildly reduced Montrachet is notably more elegant than either of its two grand cru stable mates though also much more aromatically restrained with a reluctant yet beautiful nose of white flower, spiced pear, peach and discreet minerality. The opulent and broad-scaled flavors possess terrific mid-palate concentration that coats the palate with a fine layer of dry extract that buffers well the firm acidity on the explosive, powerful and hugely long finish. A 'wow' wine!   (2/2011)

WA95: The 2009 Montrachet (from the Chassagne side) comes across as weightless and somewhat reticent at the same time. All of the elements are in the right place, the wine just appears to be in shut down phase right now. This is a decidedly elegant, understated Montrachet brimming with class. Anticipated maturity: 2016+. 92+ (AG)   (9/2011)

VM95: Pale yellow. Yellow plum, menthol, flowers and stone on the nose. Thick and fine-grained but refined; with crystallized lemon peel, stone fruit and marzipan flavors that dance on the palate. Saline, chewy and very smooth on the echoing finish, which boasts terrific lift. This is larger-scaled than the Criots-Batard and more harmonious today. Offers a rare combination of volume and cut for the year.   (9/2011)
