The 2019 Montrachet Grand Cru is a broad, dramatic wine, bursting with aromas of honeyed pears, orange oil, buttered toast, fresh mint, peaches and even tropical fruits. Full-bodied, thick and unctuous, it's ripe and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and a long, expansive finish. Readers might want to think of this powerful, broad-shouldered wine as a modern-day version of the 1989.
The Montrachet Grand Cru is a broad, dramatic wine, bursting with aromas of honeyed pears, orange oil, buttered toast, fresh mint, peaches, and even tropical fruits. Full-bodied, thick, and unctuous, it's ripe and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids, and a long, expansive finish.
Aromas of crisp green pear, citrus oil, mandarin, fresh pastry, clear honey, and oak vanillin introduce the 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, deep, and textural wine that's voluminous and powerful but incisive, with racy structuring acids and a long, chalky and elegantly honeyed finish. "If we had tried to conceive of the ideal Montrachet, we might have imagined something like this," admits Bertrand de Villaine, and the 2017 certainly numbers among the finest renditions of this iconic bottling over the last decade and beyond.
The 2015 Montrachet Grand Cru is still predictably youthful, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp Anjou pear, buttered citrus, tangerine oil, and a prominent framing of very classy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional, and concentrated, both satiny and textural without being remotely unctuous, and underpinned by succulent, even tangy acids. At this stage, where the wine really shows its pedigree is in its extraordinarily long, oak-inflected finish.

This is another legend in a bottle and, as such, must be tasted with caution to avoid falling victim to the classic Stendhal Syndrome and thus the incapacity to appreciate any other wine and the risk of falling into a deep depression.

A broad, muscular wine, the 2009 Montrachet Grand Cru delivers a rich bouquet of honeyed orchard fruit, tangerine oil, toasted nuts, and baking spices. Full-bodied, fleshy, and layered, with a concentrated core of fruit and considerable mid-palate weight, it's dramatic and expansive, gaining in vivacity with time in the glass. Surely one of the most powerful white Burgundies produced in this vintage, it is aging with grace and offers compelling drinking today.
As the late picking date would suggest, this is a very ripe and wonderfully nuanced wine with a brilliantly complex nose of white peach, pear, exotic yellow fruits, acacia blossom and citrus hints that complement perfectly the rich and monumentally constructed flavors that possess an almost chewy texture yet the mouth feel is one of satin and silk, all wrapped in a palate staining mildly toasty finish that displays impeccable balance and incredible length. To call this a knockout seems almost like faint praise but it is one genuinely stunning wine that should live for 30 to 40 years.

Wow, what a wine. Exotic scents of apricot, pineapple, citronella and honey are still marked by oak. On the palate, this is rich and creamy, almost massive, but unfolds in waves, with fine structure and a long mineral finish. All the elements are there for a great future. As perfect a young white Burgundy as I have tasted.

The Domaine de la Romanee-Conti's light-coloured 1996 Montrachet is spectacular. It’s profound, rich, and embracing nose reveals toasted minerals, white fruits, and hints of lemons. On the palate it displays enormous complexity, a broad, layered core of tropical fruits (mostly mangoes), liquid minerals, and stones. It is terribly refined, bracing, satin textured, medium-to-full-bodied, and mind-blowingly long in the finish. Its tightly wound core of fruit will require extended cellaring to blossom and reveal all of what this glorious wine has to offer.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
