The Boudot family has crafted an absolutely magical example of Montrachet in 2017, as here, the powerful style of the grand crus in this vintage is perfectly matched to its underlying terroir. The bouquet is brilliant, soaring from the glass in a blaze of apple, pear, a touch of youthful grapefruit, complex, chalky minerality, bee pollen, apple blossoms and vanillin oak. the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and racy, with a great core, superb soil complexity, vibrant acids and stunning length and grip on the beautifully balanced and endless finish. Stunning young Monty! 2028-2075.
Very different from Sauzet's Chevalier - even though the two vineyards are close to one another - this is richer and more concentrated, a broadsword rather than a rapier. Leesy and plush, it has stylishly integrated 100% new wood, a dollop of cream and a nutty, balanced finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2027. (TA)
(made from purchased must sourced from Domaine Thénard, whose vines are on the Chassagne side; aged in two-thirds new oak). Soft wood sets off the equally broad-ranging nose of notably ripe yet fresh aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit, jasmine tea, toasty wood and an exotic whisper of passion fruit. The focused and relatively sleek flavors don’t have quite the same mid-palate density of the Chevalier but there is a seemingly endless reserve of depth and drive on the amazingly long finish. This gorgeous effort is presently a block of stone and it would be pointless to open a bottle for a least 10 years and it’s very likely that 20 will be necessary to experience it at its peak.
