Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Montrachet Grand Cru 2011 from Domaine Marc Colin is absolutely stunning! It has the most outgoing bouquet of the four Montrachets and the one that exudes breeding. There is life-affirming minerality here, outstanding detail and focus with scents of powdered chalk, flint and walnut. The palate is extremely well balanced, powerful, but as you would expect this early, tightly wound. The acidity is perfectly embroidered through this Montrachet and the finish is endowed with the brooding intensity of a Jimmy Page guitar riff. I would not go near this for the next decade, but it has enormous potential. Magnificent. Nov 2014, www.robertparker.com
