Tasting Notes:

97 points Allen Meadows – Burghound: 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. (6/2010)

97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: Poured blind at the domaine. This is a brilliant, brilliant Montrachet. It is bridled with an indescribably complex bouquet has you instantly entranced: honeysuckle, Kaffir lime, crushed stones and a hint of hazelnut. Very intense and powerful, a nose that wants to indelibly imprint itself on your memory. The palate does not disappoint. You are instantly taken by the purity of the slightly botrytized fruit that lends this Montrachet a hedonistic personality, a viscous texture with background notes of honey inflecting the flavour profile from start to finish. Perfect acidity, jaw-dropping balanced and immense power, leading to a creamy finish where there is still some new oak to be subsumed. What a mesmerising wine. Riveting. Drink 2011-2040+ (NM) (3/2010)

97 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Bright full yellow. Knockout, soil-inflected nose combines menthol, honey, wild herbs, crushed stone, minerals and a whiff of caramel. Wonderfully ripe and sweet but with a light touch, thanks to its powerful stony character. The flavors of pineapple and pungent iodiney minerality saturate the palate and build slowly and inexorably. A white Burgundy of extraordinary texture and nuance. (3/2010)

97 points Vinous: The 2007 Montrachet is a great way to kick off dinner. Airy, weightless and totally classy the 2007 is a cool, super-sophisticated Montrachet that is also absolutely delicious. Taste notes from 11/2015: Lemon comfit, chamomile and a host of dried flower notes are pushed forward in a silky, layered Montrachet that brings together opulence and finesse like few vintages can. This is another wine that just gets better and better over the course of the evening. The 2007 is unusual in that it was picked well after all the Pinots had been brought in. (AG) (3/2016)

97 points Wine Spectator: Shows a complex, alluring nose of butterscotch, hazelnut and lime blossom, with coconut accents from the new oak. Starts out sumptuous, anchored by the fine structure, buttery intensity and underlying citrus and mineral flavors, ending with a long, salty, slightly leesy aftertaste. Drink now through 2030.
