  • Wine Bash of the Year 2012 (Jade Palace, Forum Galleria): Very good, but a bit clumsy for a Montrachet, especially straight out of the bottle. On first pour, it showed a big, creamy nose, with buttery vanilla creme aromas, ripe scents of pineapples and stone fruit, and a touch of toasted oak. It was almost sweet, certainly aggressive, with just a small but growing bit of earthy mineral scents pulling it back somewhat from being almost new-worldly. I liked the palate more than the nose here. Also big, also ripe, with rich yellow fruited notes on the attack, this was quite a weighty bruiser compared with the elegant Leflaive BBM on the same flight. However, it was rather more controlled than I feared on the first sip, with a nice minerality and well-woven acidity keeping the palate balanced and focused all the way into a long, powerful finish, where juicy lemon fruit mingled with a good bit of spice and a lick of oak. Good, but rather unconvincing as a Grand Cru at first, this kept improving with time, until it integrated very nicely, showing in a lovely stream of white fruit and cream. It still lacked the cut and focus of a great Monty, but I did find myself enjoying this quite a bit by the end of the evening. This is good to go now, but do give it some time in the glass.
