This superb white wine comes from the estate of the Marquis de Laguiche, the largest owner of Le Montrachet. Since 1947, Maison Joseph Drouhin has the entire charge of the estate, from the cultivation of the vineyards to the vinification of this famous wine. The grapes are picked by hand in small crates, then carefully brought to Joseph Drouhin winery in Beaune. After a slow and gentle pressing, the juice ferments in oak barrels, where it ages for 9 to 10 months. Chassagne-Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche has a lovely gold green colour. The nose is elegant, with pear, vanilla and apple as the dominant flavours. The wine is well balanced and round with a nice fruity finish. Very long and complex, this is a superb example of a great Chardonnay from Burgundy.
