The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru comes from vines just a handful of meters down from Montrachet. It sees no new oak and is aged instead in one- and two-year-old 350-liter barrels. This prudent policy allows the terroir to really shine through with gorgeous Granny Smith apple apricot blossom and limestone-like aromas. The palate is very well balanced yet very subtle perhaps more bashful than the Folatières and Referts at the moment. But you can feel the persistence on the finish. A Bâtard-Montrachet that deserves four or five years in bottle to show what it can do. -- Neal Martin
