“Loo-EE Juh-Doe Mon-Ruh-Shay Gron Crew”
Lauded as the greatest site for sublime Chardonnay expression, Le Montrachet enjoys an ideal soil composition rich in limestone. Its location also benefits from a fabulous daylong sun exposure that elevates the sensations to an ethereal masterpiece of elegant opulence. This sensorial seduction abounds with harmonious subtleties ranging from green pear and apple aromas to white peach and nectarine flavors. The silky texture and mineral undertones combine to round out the exhilarating tour de force of dazzling beauty. Historically it was favored by European nobility for milestone banquets like coronations when the richest seafood, poultry or white meat dishes were served. However, “before you can commence to savor the Montrachet’s regal pleasures, bare your head, bow, kneel, say a prayer, count your blessings… then you deserve a sip of Le Montrachet!” According to Alexandre Dumas, the author of The Three Musketeers! Serve slightly chilled (50 degrees) after decanting it for at least 30 minutes. Best 2019 – 2029.
