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

-  * **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. The good btls are youthful, but the elements are coming together beautifully. 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)?
