Montrachet(Le Montrachet) is considered the greatest expression of Chardonnay….and possibly the greatest wine period! WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 YOU’VE EVER TASTED? Not producers……but single wines! Unfortunately I don’t have enough experience with the Monty…so I can’t answer my own question….but I can tell you the greatest in my dreams……the 2007 DRC!
Had the 2010 and the 2008 DRC Montrachets last night for my wife’s birthday - Fabulous
the 08 is rich and opulent with ( a touch of botrytis ) and enough acidity for great balance and the 2010 is even better with great purity and freshness. 2004 Montrachet from DRC is my 2nd favorite after the 2010. Had the 1989 from methuselah 8 years ago that was celestial, but also very hard not to include the early to mid 80’s Ramonets( 82/85/86 ) which were my first mature Montrachets and otherworldly .
I’m sure their complexity , freshness,balance and purity could compete with all comers.
