Community Tasting Notes (5) Avg Score: 93.4 points

  • Light golden in color, nose of mature chardonnay, caramel, nuts, oily. Medium plus palate with no premox, good energy and drive but yet still not too revealing after 3 hours in the glass. Long finish with buttery minerals at the end, good but perhaps can still improve?

  • This is what I have expected from a 95 Lafon, a big, rich and powerful ones. This Montrachet tasted a bit older than a 95 vintage.

  • Nose29/30 deep nose of orange countreau burn sugar apple tart and bee wax。Taste 28/30 very sweet nutty corn and buttery 。 Palate, layers and aftertaste 27/30 very lush and full palate , layers is still tight for this heavy wine during the 3 hours meal, should open earlier, moderate aftertaste that last for 15 seconds of honey and caramel , low acidity. Value 9/10 expensive but worth the try especially if open by a friend! Will score one or two more points if the wine has more time to open.

  • Very deep, intense and rich on the nose. There was butter, honey, sugarcane, and caramel with 20 sec plus after taste. The wine was so deep that it only got better and better. I think the wine needs at least more than 3 hour of aeration to show its best at this present stage. Still have a lot of life left if its in a good condition.

  • 11 Montrachet Grand Crus and 4 Montrachet GC Neighbors (E&R Wine Shop, Portland OR): Rich, tart, and beautiful puckering aromas. Quite deep and wonderful. This wine's nose stood out from the crowd all night long and demanded you smell it. Very lovely. Awesome softness on palate entry, offering some rich apple sauce notes. Sweet and smooth. Tart, but quite soft, offering some slightly oxidized apple note. Smooth and rich. The finish is really puckering, but beautiful, as thee texture in your mouth gets really intensee. Wonderful richness on the finish, which lingers and coats the palate in a unique way after it's left your mouth. Really soft and pretty.

    (Lafon Montrachet) It was a nice palate-cleanser, I joked. The nose was toasty, minerally and nutty, pure and balanced with a rocky and minerally palate that was smooth, intense and full of butter and corn flavors
