Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

(four of seven barrels were new) Crystallized yellow fruits on the nose. Dense, sweet and very ripe; rich, chewy, large-scaled and powerful. Still an infant, but the wine's solidity and length are impressive. This has the structure of a red wine. Very strong juice, finishing with some youthful oakiness. The alcohol here is no higher than that of the Chevalier or Batard, notes Boudot, but this seems even more dense.



(made from purchased must sourced from Domaine Thénard, whose vines are on the Chassagne side of the appellation – aged in 67% new oak). The 2001 Montrachet is very much like a hypothetical blend of two-thirds Bâtard and one-third Chevalier with its expressive white flower and ripe peach nose that leads to big, thick, powerful, densely concentrated flavors of uncommon minerality and fine detail. This is a big, robust, altogether serious wine that possesses superb potential and this should be capable of at least a decade’s worth of improvement. 94/2010-18
