-  * **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.

   * **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.

[Rayner Cheung]+  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Folatières"​** (Nov. 2018 – ): 5 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 characteristicsBest 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 – ): 3 btls not oxidized. Riper than the Folatières,​ with a classically Burgundian nose that turns floral, almost like a 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]
