 +====== Background information ======
 +\\ 
  
 +  * In vintage 1996: batonnage known to have occurred, but frequency and length unknown.
 +  * In vintage 2003:"​I did virtually no //​bâtonnage//​ and I was afraid that they would take up too much wood so I racked them into stainless in May. During the //​élevage//​ the wines ate a lot of SO2 and I decided to bottle with more CO2 as well."
 +  * In vintage 2004: "​considerable lees stirring until the end of the malolactic fermentation (and, in a few cases, even later than that."​)

 +\\

 +  * **Chassagne En Virondot** (May 2011): First oxidised bottle, still drinkable but advanced. Two previous bottles recently were starting to hit their stride.

 +  * **Chassagne Morgeot** (Feb 2009): not oxidised [Dennis Ward]
 +  * **Chassagne Chatenière** (Oct 2010): not oxidised, but I was suspicious at first as quite faded vs bottles from a year or two ago. Cellar Tracker notes suggest that other tasters have observed the same thing. I think it is more a lack of acidity than premox. [CCN]
 +  * **Batard Montrachet** (August 2012): Pre-mox central. Still a little drinkable, but why would you *shrug*
 +  * Batard-Montrachet (March 2012): From magnum. Fresh and sound. [David Honig]

 +
 +  * **Chassagne En Virondot** (Jan 2011): oxidised and undrinkable [Peter Skarsgard]
 +  * **Chassagne en Virondot** ( May 2014), very gold, but nose is lovely, no ox, I wouldn'​t wait any longer though[B.Henry]
 +  * **Chassagne en Virondot** (Dec 2014) paler gold, fabulous nose/wine, no problem here [b.henry]
