The 1982 Remoissenet Montrachet is sadly slightly over the hill, but still offering fine drinkability from magnum. Starting out showing very developed … then it takes on freshness over the next 30 minutes in glass. In the end it’s old but still quite vibrant – offering fine complex aromas ranging from caramel and slightly oxodative notes… to apple, hazelnuts and almonds … hints of coffee. On the palate quite vibrant after some time in the glass … slightly oxidative in the beginning but gain freshness and the fruit becomes more prominent. It’s a big and long wine … the mighty terroir is really showing in the finish. A drinkable old wine … but this bottle showed a bit past it’s peak in my view.
