|Montrachet GC, Lafon||2014||Burgundy (White)||1 x 75cl||£1375||2||94-97 BH|
Reduction completely flattens the underlying fruit and all that can presently be discerned is wood toast. This is a much bigger and richer wine than the Perrières with its full-bodied and luxurious flavors that brim with seemingly a limitless supply of dry extract yet there is a fine sense of underlying tension and precision on the balanced and hugely persistent finish. As it usually is this stunningly good Montrachet is incredibly powerful yet focused with superb development potential that is going to require a seriously extended snooze in a cool cellar.
