Re: Have you received your DRC Allocation?

1 bottle of the DRC Monty logged into CellarTracker. DRC did not produce their own Montrachet in 2016 due to the frost. Hence, the 7 Domaines coming together to produce a one of a kind bottle for the vintage year 2016. https://www.leflaive.fr/en/news/183/montrachet-2016-first-and-foremost-a-story-o...

Haven't seen any Montrachet offered anywhere. The harvest in Montrachet was so tiny in 2016 that DRC joined forces (and grapes) with 5 other domaines (or were there six?) incl. Comte Lafon and Dom.Leflaive ... and there is a combined Montrachet .... at around 6.000 € per bottle !!! Happy hunting ! ...
