From OWC12 & At World's Best Price: 2006 Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Grand Cru Marquis de Laguiche

Posted by Veronica Cheung on

For over 140 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family and has long been one of the biggest names in Beaune and owns vineyards all over Burgundy. They 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, and only natural products are used in the vineyards and all procedures show the utmost respect for the soil, the vine and the environment. 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.

94-96pts Allen Meadows
*Don't miss!* As good and refined as several of the foregoing wines are, this is the clear class of the cellar with moderate wood notes framing a fresh, intense and airy nose that sports impressive aromatic breadth while merging into exceptionally rich and intense full-bodied flavors that possess seemingly buckets of dry extract which gives the finish a textured and naturally sweet character. A wine of power yet excellent energy and focus and this too is both quite primary and youthfully austere at present. A potentially great Drouhin Montrachet. Drink: 2016+ 

93-94pts Wine Advocate
The 2006 Montrachet Marquies de Laguiche (about to be bottled when I tasted it) is predictably richer and creamier than the other wines in Drouhin’s 2006 collection, but also more penetrating, vibrant, and thought-provoking. White peach, nut oils, bittersweet hyacinth and iris floral notes, along with hints of wet stone and bitter notes of fruit pit that compliment its sense of sweet ripeness, make for an exceptionally complex and harmonious whole, whose layering reflects the eight surgical passes over this vineyard that constituted its 2006 harvest. Even here, there is a relatively obvious toasty, spicy note of oak, but it is well-integrated into the long, enveloping finish. No doubt this will evolve fascinatingly over the coming decade.
