Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind, the 2011 Montrachet Grand Cru was showing more oak on the nose compared to the other crus, probably because it is limited to a single barrel so there are no non new oak options available. Underneath that veneer lies red apples, dried honey and a touch of nutmeg. The palate is ripe and honeyed, quite forward compared to its peers with fine weight in the mouth, albeit missing the tension and mineralité of its Chevalier-Montrachet counterpart. There is a nice fatness in situ, but it does not quite deliver the sophistication of the Chevalier-Montrachet and is more on par (not superior) with the Bâtard-Montachet. Tasted October 2016.
