(Lafon Montrachet) A 1982 Lafon Montrachet was the second-to-last official wine served on this incredible evening, and it was the perfect spot for this spectacular white. It reminded me how a bottle (or flight) of Champagne or even white wine can be a welcome intermezzo/cleanser in order to march onwards with the reds. This was a perfect example of that, and Eddie was all over it immediately, citing ‘now this is ’82 white Burgundy.’ It had a big, buttery nose full of almond paste and great bread oil. It was sexy and delicious, super rich and buttery as well as nutty. It was Eddie’s ‘wine of the night,’ and up to that point it was, but it would prove to be a short-lived statement
