Vinous, 99 Points 

"The 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru comprises seven barrels this year. It has a stunning, penetrating bouquet that rivets you to the spot with astonishing mineral tension and scents of wet granite, citrus lemon and grilled walnut. The beautifully balanced palate offers hints of white chocolate and almond and amazing delineation and mineralité, not to mention stunning persistence on the finish. This is a wine that makes you go "wow," or rather "WOW" – it deserves capital letters." 

Decanter, 98 Points 

"The very good news for fans of this wine - and that surely includes anyone who has been lucky enough to drink a bottle - is that Dominique Lafon produced a record (for him) seven barrels in 2018, the most since his father was in charge back in 1982. Sourced from a 0.3ha of Burgundy's most famous white Grand Cru, it's a white that takes your breath away: subtle, complex and intense, with easily digested new wood, layers of citrus, stone fruit and spice and near-perfect balance." 

Wine Advocate, 98 Points 

"There are fully seven barrels of the 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru—one fewer than the eight produced in 1982, but considerably more than the four that have been more or less the norm over the last decade—equating to a yield of around 45 hectoliters per hectare from Lafon's 0.32-hectare parcel. Bursting with expressive aromas of orange oil, white flowers, ripe pears, warm bread and toasted almonds, it's full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a satiny-textured attack, an ample core of fruit and chalky grip on the impressively long finish." 

Alcohol: 13%
