1988 Montrachet Grand Cru Joseph Drouhin - Marquis De Laguiche 75cl / 13%
A bottle of 1988 Montrachet Grand Cru Marquis de Laguiche from Joseph Drouhin.
The 8 hectare Le Montrachet vineyard is generally regarded as the finest Chardonnay vineyard in the world, and is located in the Côte de Beaune subregion of Burgundy, shared between the two communes of Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. It is surrounded by four other Grand Cru vineyards all having 'Montrachet' as part of their titles.
The 2.06 hectare Marquis de Laguiche estate is entirely located on the Puligny side of the appellation on a mild slope with a great south-eastern exposure. The largest parcel of the Montrachet vineyard, it has been in the hands of the Laguiche family since 1776.
