flagBurgundy / France

Comparing the 2004 Montrachet against the 2002, the latter is clearly the superior wine. The aromatics feel a little discombobulated at first, with suggestions of TCA or sulphur reduction. But allowing the wine to breathe, my conclusion is that it displays that mulchy, herbaceous element that afflicts so many 2004 Burgundies. The palate is still quite attractive with a fine line of acidity, notes of walnut and smoke, though there is just a touch of greenness marring the finish. This is a perplexing Montrachet that feels a little out of sorts. Tasted September 2013. Oct 2013, www.robertparker.com
