The 2015 Montrachet from Céline Fontaine is very similar in style to the Bâtard, offering up great precision and intensity of flavor without undue weight. The nose soars from the glass in a complex blend of apple, pear, spring flowers, a hint of almond, plenty of floral tones and a fine base of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and racy in personality, with a rock solid core, laser-like focus and enormous backend energy on the vibrant and endless finish. Sheer brilliance! 2020-2050+.
The 2015 Montrachet was showing a touch of reduction on the nose, but it soon dissipates with attractive orange blossom, hints of marmalade and yellow plum. The palate is very well balanced with superb weight. This is a Montrachet that really delivers: very intense with great persistence, a twist of ginger towards the finish. This was certainly one of the better Montrachets that I encountered from this vintage and it has huge potential. (NM)
Bright pale yellow. Very reticent aromas of yellow fruits and spicy oak, plus a whiff of honey. Opulent, spicy and sweet in the mouth, conveying a seamless texture to the yellow fruit and spice flavors. The thick, slowly mounting finish delivers an impression of power but this Montrachet's impressive fat and early balance suggest that it should approach peak drinkability within five or six years after bottling.

This too is very firmly reduced at present. The broad-shouldered flavors are at once bigger and richer but also ever-so-slightly more refined while displaying impressive power and punch on the caressing yet chewy and tannic finish. This is a big if not outright massive Montrachet that, not surprisingly, is also going to require extended cellaring to arrive at its full potential. *Don't miss!* Drink: 2027+
