Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche
Cellared professionally under bond at Octavian (UK).
ONE SINGLE COLLECTION
From a longstanding Wine Source client, originally sourced by Wine Source for their distinguished collection.
The vineyard & cellar
Situated in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, the estate of the Marquis de Laguiche is entirely located on the Puligny side of the appellation. A very mild slope and a great south-east exposure of brown-red earth, strewn with white, polished limestone pebble. The word “rachet” in Montrachet means infertile land, where nothing can grow.
Historically, a few vineyards have been considered heirloom treasures for their incomparable quality. The Montrachet of Marquis de Laguiche belongs to this Pantheon. This is actually the largest parcel of the Montrachet vineyard and has been in the hands of the Laguiche family since 1776. The Drouhin family is in charge of its cultivation and vinification and, since 1947, has spread and preserved its worldwide renown.
Aged for 15-18 months in french oak barrels (25% new oak). In 2008 the malolactic fermentations began later than usual and lasted several months. This ageing on the lees allowed the wines to gain complexity, flesh, and to reduce the acidity level. The wine displays richness, minerality and freshness.

“Véronique Drouhin commented that the clement harvest weather saved the vintage, but it was a small yield with small berries that were high in acidity. The 2008 is showing beautifully at the moment. It has a fabulous bouquet of honeycomb, yellow flowers, crushed stone and even a touch of gingerbread. The palate conveys an effervescent quality, showing veins of orange peel and mandarin, and less.”
