Winemaker Notes

An authentic masterpiece! This wine should be regarded as the yardstick by which all other Burgundies should be judged. The colour has a splendid golden sheen. On the nose, a multitude of aromas are a pleasure to discover: floral notes of lily of the valley, peach blossom, exotic fruit, honey, grilled almonds, even exotic woods at times. On the palate, the structure is dominated by a harmonious roundness which never imparts any heaviness. The aftertaste is exceptionally long and enhances the finesse of the whole. A glorious symphony of sensations!

Like all great white wines, Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche deserves to accompany the best fish and shellfish dishes, such as lobster or crabmeat in a light wine sauce; salmon, trout or Dover sole simply grilled or poached.

Critical Acclaim

JS98 James Suckling
What a glorious white with such length, complexity and character that changes all the time. Dried-apple, cream, pineapple and honey notes, as well as light tropical fruit and honeysuckle. It’s full-bodied and very tight and compact. The finish goes on for minutes with honey, flint, cream and apples. A dream. Of course, you are supposed to age this, but it’s so beautiful now.
D97 Decanter
At an enviable 2ha, the Marquis de Laguiche's holdings are the largest in the Grand Cru and have been put to good use by Véronique Drouhin and her team. This is a superb expression of one of Burgundy's greatest terroirs, with wonderful citrus and stone fruit aromas, some kitchen spices and patisserie, very fine 30% new wood and remarkable palate length.
