Vinous – 97
The 2020 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Grand Cru is consistent with my previous tasting in January. Exquisite definition on the nose, real mineralité here. The palate is intense and penetrating, touches of orange zest and spice building wonderfully towards the finish. Excellent.

Cask sample. Amazing this is being poured, considering the price! A tad too cool admittedly. Tingly and rich but it’s just a bit too tight to see its real qualities, which are probably there but a bit buried at the moment. Long though!
