-  * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Mar. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized. ​Not decanted. Quite massive, but more enjoyable than the BBV. 1 btl (Dec. 2018) had a lot of wood in the nose but wasn't corked or otherwise compromised. Somehow, the Sauzet 1er crus from this vintage have been more memorable than the rather ​stiff grand crus. 7 btls purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Sep. 2014 (1) + Apr. 2015 (6). [Rayner Cheung]+  * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Mar. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized. ​Better ​decanted.

[Rayner Cheung]
   * **Bienvenues–Bâtard–Montrachet** (Jan. 2018): Not oxidized. Deep gold. Not decanted. Somewhat reticent initially, but both the nose & the palate developed nicely in the glass. The 2004 is much more charming; this one was a bit four–square. Purchased in Mar. 2014 at retail in Tokyo. [Rayner Cheung]   * **Bienvenues–Bâtard–Montrachet** (Jan. 2018): Not oxidized. Deep gold.

   * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Combettes"​** (Nov. 2015 – Dec. 2017): 8 btls not oxidized + 1 corked. One good btl had just a hint of honied maturity in the nose. Other good btls had a younger aromatic & flavor profile, with some quinine–like astringency on the palate. Best served decanted. From 9 btls purchased in Jan. 2014 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer.

-  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Combettes"​** (Jun. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized + 1 btl advanced but still drinkable. ​Not decanted. The good btls are youthful, but the elements are coming together beautifully. Just–ripe citrus in the nose carries over to the palate, which is complicated by a tantalizing interplay between refreshing acidity & sweet fruit. At least 1 btl delivered an astonishing surge of flavor in the finish with nut oils, preserved lemon, & salted caramel that was reminiscent of New World Chardonnay. From 2 lots of 6 purchased in Dec. 2013 & Jul. 2015 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer.

   * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Referts"​** (Aug. 2018 – Jan. 2019): 2 btls not oxidized + 1 btl advanced. The good btls are half a notch down from the Combettes in terms of power & complexity, but all of the same elements are there: a lemony bouquet that's easy on the senses continues on to the palate where sweetness from the fruit provides exceptional balance. From a lot of 3 purchased in Aug. 2015 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer.

   * **Puligny Combettes** (May 2019): after the Referts & Perrieres. Another odd bottle, the darkest colour (just) of the 3.  No obvious pox, but just tatses of caramel, flat, no fruit or minerality or lift. Very advanced - certainly way below par (again)?
