Hints of matchstick and petrol are present on the restrained but elegant nose that features notes of lemon rind, tea, spiced pear, white peach and acacia blossom. The serious and strikingly rich flavors are imposingly scaled as well as impressively concentrated while delivering overt power on the minerally and impeccably well-balanced finish. Not surprisingly at barely 5 years of age, this is still very much a work in progress and I wouldn't touch another bottle for at least 6 to 8 more years and the '14 Montrachet may well require 15 years of cellaring before it realizes its full, and considerable, potential. Lovely stuff.
