This wine comes entirely from the Puligny-Montrachet side of the Grand Cru, from vines which were planted in 1962 (so are now over 55 years old). The parcel is perfectly positioned in the Bâtard-Montrachet “shoulder” – the plot lying between Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and the great Le Montrachet. As in Clos-Vougeot, top section Bâtard plots are the best. To preserve freshness, like others in the range, this wine was racked from barrel into vat in August 2020, prior to bottling. Colour is limpid, green-golden, aromas evoking orange peel and exotic fruits. Palate is powerfully structured, packed with ripe fruitiness, finishing creamily, with magnificent length (for drinking 2023-2030+).
