2008 Montrachet Grand Cru Magnum Etienne Sauzet - Large Format 150cl / 13.5%
A magnum bottle of Montrachet Grand Cru 2008 from producer Etienne Sauzet.
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.
'An expressive and still wonderfully fresh nose consists of floral, white and yellow orchard fruit, oak, spice and citrus aromas. The gorgeously rich, intense and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors possess excellent detail before culminating in a mouth coating and tremendously persistent finish. This is still very youthful and clearly still on the way up and while it could certainly be enjoyed now, it should continue to develop well if allowed another few years first. In a word, fantastic. 96/100' Allen Meadows, Burgound, 2017
