This comes entirely from the Chassagne-Montrachet sector of Bâtard-Montrachet, from vines which lie just across the road from Le Montrachet itself. It is one of the choicest spots for Bâtard-Montrachet, where there are many small pebbles, and less clay than in the Puligny sections, or further down the hillside. This contributes to this wine’s exceptional finesse and elegance. Planted in 1983 by his late grandfather, these vines have now reached full maturity. Green-golden in colour, tasted from barrel this was richly aromatic, with a suspicion of orange-peel. Palate is full-bodied, dense and creamy, with harmonious aftertaste, part mineral, part naturally fresh from its retained acidity – a great bottle (for drinking 2022-2028+).
