   * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Apr. 2021 – ): 1 btl not oxidized. ​ Apr. 2021: Ominous shade of gold but not a trace of oxidation. Restrained both in the nose & on the palate, but there were distinct hints of the much beloved old school Niellon style from the 1980's & early 1990's – hedonistic butterscotch & popcorn – but with a modern overlay of mineralité. Lovely. From 5 btls purchased from a reputable West Coast retailer in Sep. 2013.

-  * **Chassagne–Montrachet "Les Vergers"​** (Mar. 2021 – ): 2 btls not oxidized. 1st btl was also a bit thin like the Chaumées. 2nd btl had a more floral aromatic profile to balance its citrus/​mineral character, & was considerably more enjoyable to drink.
