Pale lemon and lime. The bouquet shows all the majesty of this vineyard without the over-ripeness which I have found in some past vintages. 29 hl/ha. Superb intensity with a measured ripeness of fruit from these 48 year old vines, which are ploughed by a horse named Croesus. Stretches out beautifully at the back, with some peachier notes at the finish. Really very persistent indeed. Excellent. Tasted: November 2021—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Caroline Lestimé works a 0.36-hectare parcel on the Chassagne side of the appellation to produce this supremely elegant Bâtard-Montrachet, the highlight of her cellar. The grapes were picked on August 24th and fermented in 80% new casks. The nose is fragrant with notes of ripe apple and white flowers; the texture avoids any heaviness and has a surprising snap of freshness that ensures that it will age well for years to come.--Charles Curtis MW, Decanter 

Tasting note: An overtly floral-suffused nose speaks of white orchard fruit, star anise, citrus confit and a subtle exotic tea nuance. The sleek and borderline painfully intense big-bodied flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration before terminating in a very compact, tightly wound and hugely long finale. This is very backward and almost raw in how primary it is and as such, it would be largely pointless to open a bottle before at least 5 years of age. This beauty possess first-rate potential provided you have the patience. Don’t Miss. –Allen Meadows, Burghound
