New Score Received! 98pts NM Joseph Drouhin Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet 2017

Posted by CheungVeronica on

Founded in 1880, Joseph Drouhin was originally from the Chablis region and settled in Beaune to set up his wine company. But it was in 1957, when Robert Drouhin, Joseph Drouhin's grandson, took over that the domaine started to gain its present dimension with its acquisition of many vineyards, and that they began doing away with pesticides and other chemicals and built a laboratory of enology run by Laurence Jobard, the very first woman enologist in Burgundy. They then built a reputation for making wines that primarily reflect the individual terroir and vintage as they apply a balance of traditional and modern techniques and carefully monitor the whole winemaking process from vine to wine. They were awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage. Their house style captures the purity of fruits with shorter aging period in oak and earlier bottling to preserve the charming fruitiness and completely reflect the terroirs in which the grapes were from; and specifically, their whites are pure, offering complete cleanliness in the palate.

Among their portfolio, there is the Montrachet of Marquis de Laguiche which is one of the best vineyards that is considered heirloom treasure for its incomparable quality. Located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, the estate of the Marquis de Laguiche is entirely located on the Puligny side of the appellation. It is the largest parcel of the Montrachet vineyard and has been in the hands of the Laguiche family since 1776. The Drouhin family is in charge of its cultivation and vinification and, since 1947, has spread and preserved its worldwide renown. Their head winemaker, Véronique Boss-Drouhin, claims that the wine from this vineyard "should be regarded as the yardstick by which all other Burgundies should be judged" and that it offers "a glorious symphony of sensations".
Today we are pleased to offer the Montrachet of Marquis de Laguiche from vintage 2017. This has been up scored to a massive 98pts by Vinous’ Neal Martin in the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune in August 2021.

98pts Neal Martin

The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru is slightly deeper in color. This has a gorgeous bouquet of lemon thyme, orange blossom and crushed stone, all very focused, followed by an emerging touch of mintiness. The harmonious palate is powerful, ripe and slightly vanilla-y; it just lacks a little breeding and panache. A bold and brassy yet cerebral Montrachet that will need a lot of time. This surpasses all my expectations from barrel.
