The Marquis de Laguiche family is the largest shareholder (2.06ha to be exact) of the fascinating, and undoubtedly the best and most valuable terroir for white wine in the world – Le Montrachet. You probably need less introduction to Le Montrachet as it is well-known to be the best terroir making the most complex and long living white wines in the world, and prices of wines coming from this terroir are never low – a bottle of Montrachet from Leflaive could easily cost HK$45,000 or Ramonet at about HK$11,000.
The family has owned their share of this land since 1390 and the powerhouse, Maison Joseph Drouhin has helped to make their wines since 1947.
We have secured a case of Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche 2008 and has now arrived in our stock. We believe this cannot be missed. It outscores Comtes Lafon Montrachet 2008 (Market Price – HK$12,369) and comes quite close with Domaine de la Romanee Conti and Leflaive’s Montrachet (see table below). A very strong and compelling opportunity!

Highly perfumed notes of honeysuckle, acacia blossom, sandalwood and yellow orchard fruit aromas trimmed in just enough wood to notice give way to powerful, rich and dense full-bodied flavors that possess obvious muscle and simply huge length on the naturally sweet, complex and palate staining finish. This is a big and powerful yet elegant wine that is still very much on the way up. That said there is so much dry extract present that despite the long-term development potential this could actually be enjoyed now though I underscore that this should very much reward extended aging.

Savoury notes, piercingly crystalline structure. I thought perhaps it was a Leflaive. Bone dry, high acid and clearly very youthful. This was one of the wines that quite a lot of tasters guessed as a white burgundy even if they didn't realise quite how grand it was.
Subject to final confirmation. In stock.
