-  * **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.
