95 Pts Allen Meadows - Burghound
"A wonderfully fresh, airy and bright nose of citrus and green apple aromas trimmed in a bit of wood spice complement perfectly the big, rich and gorgeously intense full-bodied flavors that also ooze with dry extract driven into a palate staining and explosively long finish. This is actually a beautifully elegant example with superb flavor authority and the purity of expression is flat out terrific. This will require some cellar time first as it is youthfully austere and backward at present." 95 Points - Allen Meadows - Burghound
"From the grandest of Burgundyâs white vineyards, this Le Montrachet sums up the 2006 white vintage. Its structure, freshness and richness rolls the wine around the mouth, offering citrus, bitter orange and yellow fruit flavors. Toast flavors round the wine, leaving a hugely satisfying aftertaste." 96 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Representing 9 barrels, all from purchased fruit grown on the Chassagne side of the cru, Jadotâs 2006 Montrachet smells decadently of heliotrope, fading lilies, over-ripe peach, and grilled pineapple; comes to the palate predictably full and rich yet surprisingly fresh and invigorating; and lays down a plush, faintly warm, rich but not especially fine-grained carpet of flavor in the finish. While less dramatic than the Batard or mysterious than the Chevalier, this is nonetheless truly grand, and surely capable of at least a decadeâs fascinating evolution. " 94-95 Points - David Schildknecht - Wine Advocate
"Full yellow. Stone fruit and pineapple aromas are almost exotic following the Chevalier. Like a fruit cocktail in the mouth, with a liqueur-like suggestion, hints of dried fruits and a strong clove spiciness. Broad and rich but uncompromisingly dry on the powerful, slightly aggressive finish. This could hardly be more different from the Chevalier, but then Jadot did not ferment this wine and it completed its malolactic fermentation. "And Montrachet from the Chassagne side is less fine than wine made from vines in Puligny," noted Lardiere." 92(+?) Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
"Le Montrachet has a very nice, bright and shiny gold colour. It is a complex and powerful wine. Its comparable depth, intense fruit elegance, and layers of complex, textural richness, reflected in a sublime bouquet reminiscent of honey toast, culminate with a persistent finish." -Winemaker
"Le Montrachet is situated to the south of the CÃ´te de Beaune, on both villages of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet (like the Batard Montrachet Grand Cru). The terroir is extremely chalky with a lot of stones, perfectly drained and easy to overheat with south-south-eastern exposition. The Montrachet is produced with 100% Chardonnay grapes."
"This wine is fermented in wooden barrels like all our Grands Crus from the CÃ´te d'Or area, and then aged in barrels during 18-20 months before bottling. This vinification highlights the unique qualities inherent in the fruit of this great vineyard." -Winemaker
