A whiff of the exotic can be found on the notably ripe and beautifully layered nose that reflects notes of honey, citrus, spice, oak and a touch of matchstick character. There is superb size, weight and minerality to the impressively scaled big-bodied flavors that are so dense that there is a distinctly lavish and lush mouth feel to them, all wrapped in an explosive and almost painfully intense finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. While I do note the presence of a hint of exoticism on the nose, I would observe that the 2014 Montrachet is less exotic than it usually is. I also suspect that despite being quite tightly wound today, it will be more accessible young than many vintages of this storied wine. Lastly, I had the occasion to try this twice and both bottles showed similarly. Tasted: Jan 2017; Drink: 2026+; Issue: 65; Rating 95 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
