-  * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Dec. 2017 – ): btls not oxidized + 3 btls over the hill/​oxidized. ​Good btls were scintillating,​ lively, multi–faceted. A great relief after the disatrous 2007'​s. From a lot of 11 (yes, 11) purchased in Aug. 2014 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer. Back label: Atherton Wine Imports. [Rayner Cheung]+  * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Dec. 2017 – May 2019): btls not oxidized + 3 btls over the hill/​oxidized. ​The good btls were absolutely ​scintillating,​ lively, multi–faceted ​examples of benchmark Burgundy grand cru. The last btl in this tranche was stunning (May 4, 2019). A great relief after the disatrous 2007'​s. From a lot of 11 (yes, 11) purchased in Aug. 2014 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer. Back label: Atherton Wine Imports. [Rayner Cheung]
   * **Bienvenue Batard Montrachet** (July 2017) Deep golden color. Uh oh. Barely, barely hanging on. Whiff of sherry on the nose. Acidity is prominent, most of the fruit pretty well gone. Imported by Fine Vines in Chicago.[pmesro]   * **Bienvenue Batard Montrachet** (July 2017) Deep golden color. Uh oh. Barely, barely hanging on. Whiff of sherry on the nose.

 +  * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Oct. 2019 – ): 1 btl oxidized + 2 btls not oxidized. The good btls were brilliant, as good as the 2008, but not as sexy. Sliced pear, peach, & apricot intermingled with white flowers inform the exquisite nose. Still a little tight on the palate, but developing admirably. Best decanted. From 4 btls purchased in Apr. 2011 from a reputable West Coast retailer + a lot of 3 btls purchased in Oct. 2015 from the auction platform of the same retailer. Back label: Latitude Wines (retail) + Atherton Wine Imports (auction). The oxidized btl came from auction. [Rayner Cheung]

-  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Folatières"​** (Nov. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized. ​Quite pale yellow ​colorSomewhat ​austere & reduced. Best decanted, allowing the floral elements to emerge. From 6 btls purchased in Apr. 2011 from a reputable West Coast retailer. This wine has barely evolved since purchase 8 years ago when a trial btl was consumed. [Rayner Cheung] +  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Folatières"​** (Nov. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized. ​This has acquired some color in the past year, going from pale yellow ​to light amberIt has also gone from somewhat ​austere & reduced ​to being a full, rich white Burgundy with noble characteristics. Best decanted, allowing the floral elements ​& orchard fruit essence ​to emerge. From 6 btls purchased in Apr. 2011 from a reputable West Coast retailer. [Rayner Cheung] 
-  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Pucelles"​** (Dec. 2018 – ): 1 btl not oxidized. ​Slightly riper than the Folatières, ​but still quite reduced ​with an indistinct ​nose modestly pleasurable ​palate. From 6 btls purchased in Apr. 2011 from a reputable West Coast retailer. [Rayner Cheung]+  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Pucelles"​** (Dec. 2018 – ): 4 btls not oxidized. ​Best decanted. More feminine ​than the Folatières,​ with an intense ​nose of citrus oils that turns floral, almost like top Condrieu. White–fleshed fruits on the lovely ​palate. Hints of orange blossom also. From 6 btls purchased in Apr. 2011 from a reputable West Coast retailer. [Rayner Cheung]
