The true glory of white Burgundy should always be revealed by Montrachet. This wine, with its wonderful combination of ripe fruits and dense, intense structure, does just that. It has power, a serious intent for aging and a range of delicious fruits. Still young, it is not for early drinking, so wait until 2019.
