Description

The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is a terrific success, exhibiting aromas of pear, honeycomb, white flowers, toasted nuts and a delicate top note of petrol. Full-bodied, layered and incisive, it's fleshy and nicely concentrated, even if it's a comparatively open, giving rendition of this supremely age-worthy cuvée. 95 points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

In much the same fashion as the Chenevottes, touches of smoke and matchstick characters are present on the softly exotic aromas of passion fruit, white peach, citrus and pretty floral nuances. The succulent and seductive yet powerful broad-shouldered flavors possess very good mid-palate density while exhibiting first-rate complexity on the firmly structured, long and serious finale. Patience definitely advised for this beauty. 92-95 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey's two 85-year-old parcels sit close to the border between Puligny and Chassagne-Montrachet. Aged in 50% new wood, the resulting wine has fresh, floral, white flower and tangerine aromas, focused, chiselled acidity, leesy palate weight and scented, toasty oak that will fold into the wine over the next year or two. Drinking Window 2023 - 2035. 95 points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter
