This wine comes entirely from the Puligny-Montrachet side of the Grand Cru, from vines which were planted in 1962 (so are now well over 50 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, top section Bâtard plots are the best. In colour, this is strikingly rich, green-gold, with opulent, fresh aromas of hazelnut and ripe peach. It has broad structure with mouth-filling, ripe fruitiness. Texture is creamy, smooth and dense. This is a dazzlingly rich wine, with an exhilaratingly fresh, long finish (for drinking 2020-2030+).
