There are many who say that the Marquis de Laguiche parcel is the greatest in all of Montrachet. And when it comes to white wine, Montrachet is easily one of the greatest.
The Drouhin family has farmed this prestigious, 2.06-hectare vineyard since 1947, though it has belonged, since 1363, to one of the oldest aristocratic families in France, from whom it takes its name.
If Montrachet is known for a coating lavishness, Marquis de Laguiche carries this grandeur with an uncommon energetic mineral streak. Montrachet doesn't get any more graceful or finessed than Drouhin's Marquis de Laguiche. It's the combination of powerful, layered complexity with detailed, vibrant minerality that has landed the wine a huge fan club. Taste Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche and it's clear that it's is a wine for the ages.
The 2014 Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche promises to be an epic example of this wine. The stunning combination of concentration, purity and verve dovetailed perfectly with the wine's style. There's a crystal clear mineral streak that adds a dynamic element to the deeply complex spice, floral and stone fruit elements.
The excitement over 2014 White Burgundy is intense. This is one of the most exciting and sought after vintages of the past decade. The unfortunate part is that the wines are quickly disappearing from the market. We have a very limited amount of Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche available. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

2014 Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche
Burghound: "Firm reduction completely dominates the nose at present. On the plus side there is excellent concentration to the beautifully well-delineated broad-shouldered flavors that possess a wonderfully refined mouth feel while delivering huge length on the impeccably well-balanced finale. As Drouhin's Montrachet often is, this is a wine of refinement and grace and while it is by no means lacks power or punch, it is much like the Corton-Charlemagne in that it is sleek and classy with a sneaky long finish."
