Background


  • In vintage 1999: stirred the lees once per week; duration unspecified.
  • In vintage 2000: per Allen Meadows: “Boillot said that he did a full eight months of bâtonnage (most domaines stop after the malo is completed).”
  • In vintage 2002: no information on batonnage
  • In vintage 2003: “I also did almost no bâtonnage, which is to say only two times total as I felt it was critical to retain as much CO2 as possible.”
  • In vintage 2004: no batonnage except for the bourgogne and the three village wines
  • In vintage 2005: no batonnage

It remains stunning, with beautiful white flowers in the nose and a saturated palate so rich that it's painful to taste. Matches Leflaive's top vintages of Chevalier in every respect. Reinforces my view that 2004 was the vintage of the decade for white Burgundy. From a lot of 3 purchased from a reputable West Coast retailer's auction platform in May 2018. [Rayner Cheung]

  • Montrachet (April 2015): Medium or even a bit deeper gold. Reticent on the nose, seemed like a hint of the early stages of tiring, and a disconnect between the fruit and the very fine acidity on the palate.
