The 2019 Montrachet Grand Cru is a broad, dramatic wine, bursting with aromas of honeyed pears, orange oil, buttered toast, fresh mint, peaches and even tropical fruits. Full-bodied, thick and unctuous, it's ripe and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and a long, expansive finish. Readers might want to think of this powerful, broad-shouldered wine as a modern-day version of the 1989.  Date: Jan 2022; Drink: 2025-2055; Rating: 96+ Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

A more reserved nose grudgingly reveals its even more floral-infused aromas of clove, anise, exotic tea, petrol and enough wood to mention. The exceptionally rich and concentrated broad-shouldered flavors brim with sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the even firmer acid spine shaping the redoubtably powerful and almost painfully intense finish that seems to have no end. This is absolutely brilliant and one of the brightest highlights of the vintage though note well that as is typically the case with this wine, it's going to require extended patience if you wish to see it at its peak.
