-  * **Montrachet** (Apr. 2019 – ): 1 btl not oxidized. Glorious wine with absolutely extraordinary length.

-  * **Bâtard–Montrachet** (Mar. 2018 – ): btls not oxidized. Better decanted. Quite monolithic, 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 foursquare grand crus. 7 btls purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Sep. 2014 (1) + Apr. 2015 (6).

   * **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. Better 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. [Rayner Cheung]+  * **Puligny–Montrachet "Les Combettes"​** (Jun. 2018 – May 2020): 10 btls not oxidized + 2 btls advanced but still drinkable. Better decanted.

Just–ripe citrus in the nose, complicated by smokey, leesy complexity in some btls, carries over to the palate, which is complicated by a tantalizing interplay between refreshing acidity & sweet fruit.

   * **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.

   * **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)?
