    Subtle clotted cream aromas and a tinge of smoky spice. This is a stunningly pure style with the characteristic bold, ostentatious nature of fruit one expects from the great Bâtard. Very full and very long.

    The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a very classy, quite understated bouquet, especially considering the vintage, with fleeting scents of orange blossom, crushed flint and a touch of flaked almonds. The palate is well balanced with intense citrus fruit, orange zest and peach all laced with lemongrass and white pepper. This fans out beautifully towards the finish, completing a superb Bâtard-Montrachet from Jean-Marc Boillot. Drink 2023-2040

    Fine pale colour, almost a touch of curry on the nose. Exceptionally backward thereafter, chiselled minerals at the back. Significant weight, blocky, not wearing its heart on its sleeve now but with so much more to deliver. This will be a very fine and, despite the yields, concentrated. Lovely finish.

Producer

Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot

Jean-Marc and his children Lydie and Benjamin consistently make some of the most appealing and forward drinking wines from their significant holdings across Burgundy. Their range of Puligny Montrachet premiers crus shows impressive individual distinction. Jean-Marc’s family has a long and distinguished history in Burgundy. His grandfather was Etienne Sauzet, from whom he inherited vineyards in the early 1990s. He spent his early career working for the family domaine, Henri Boillot, before making the wine at Domaine Olivier Leflaive. In the 1980s he began making wine from his own vineyards which were significantly expanded with his Sauzet inheritance of an outstanding array of Puligny premier cru sites. The family have exported their uncomplicated but precise winemaking philosophy further south to the Côte Chalonnaise, and more recently, Mâcon.

Bâtard-Montrachet

Bâtard-Montrachet is a great white Grand Cru in Burgundy's Côte D'or. Its vineyards are located onthe slope beneath Le Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune. Bâtard-Montrachet's soils are heavier than those surrounding it, made up of brown limestone and gravel, which pave the way for rich, nutty, honeyed and heady wines with good structure. They are not as elegant as those from Chevalier-Montrachet and are broader and weightier than wines from Montrachet.
