This wine comes entirely from the Puligny-Montrachet side of the Grand Cru, from vines which were planted in 1962 (so are now nearly 60 years old). The parcel is perfectly positioned in the Bâtard-Montrachet “shoulder” – the plot lying between Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and the great Le Montrachet itself. As in Clos-Vougeot, the top section plots are the best. To preserve freshness, like others in the range this wine was racked in September 2021, in preparation for its assembly in vat, prior to bottling. Colour is pale, lemon-golden, aromas fresh and clean, yet discreet. This is a muscular wine, which needed little lees-rousing to bring texture and creaminess – these were to be tasted from the outset, naturally. The wine has latent power, great fruit concentration, with a broad, refreshing, ample finish and splendid length (for drinking 2023-2030+).
