An absolute stunner. With so many more dimensions on the nose, starry stoniness with ripeness and touches of deeper richer fruit. This is going to enjoy an extra six months in barrel over the other whites in the range “as it has so much to give”. However, it’s already clear that this is going to be a spellbinding wine – powerful, expressive, with great poise and layer after layer of flavour that wrap themselves around the palate. It’s nimble too, but not at the expense of great depth and length. Huge persistence. Superb plus. A fine parcel of Bâtard on the Puligny side of the vineyard near Pierre Morey's vines, abutting Montrachet. Fermentation and élevage take place in 350 litre barrels, with no bâtonnage, for 12 months before six months in stainless steel.
