Wine Advocate

93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Montrachet Grand Cru (Marquis de Laguiche) felt very closed and taciturn on the nose when I tasted it, despite rigorous coaxing. The palate is well balanced with a lightly honeyed, spicy opening, more saline than the Corton-Charlemagne with a long aftertaste carried by a tang of ginger that leaves the mouth tingling. It will deserve 5 or 6 years in bottle, but it will be worth the wait." 12/17

92-95 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(production here was less than 50% of a normal crop but Drouhin benefited by being on the Puligny side of this grand cru as the Montrachet vines in Chassagne were decimated by frost): Pale bright yellow. Aromas of ripe apricot, pear, smoke and iodine along with a trace of apple from a lot that finished its malo late. (Drouhin began with three cuvées, one picked very early, one in the middle of the harvest and one later on.) Thick, sweet and voluptuous in the mouth, but with its intense stone fruit flavors nicely framed by integrated acidity. Almost creamy in texture and harmonious from the start. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and terrific palate-staining length. This really saturates the mouth and leaves the taste buds quivering." 6/17


95 Points, Burghound: " A strikingly pretty and layered nose reflects notes of mineral reduction, citrus peel, acacia blossom, spice and essence of green apple. There is excellent freshness and terrific intensity to the big-bodied and tautly muscular flavors that brim with impressive amounts of dry extract on the balanced and explosively long finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. This is very much still a work in progress and I would recommend not touching a bottle for at least 5 years and 12 to 15 would be better." 6/18
