   * **Batard Montrachet**(Jan 2012): not oxidized; still a baby and very primary (MSaviage)   * **Batard Montrachet**(Jan 2012): not oxidized; still a baby and very primary (MSaviage)
   * **Bienvenues–Bâtard–Montrachet** (Nov. 2016 – Oct. 2018): 6 btls not oxidized. Straw gold color & excellent clarity. Not decanted. Utterly compelling bouquet of sweet white flowers, stoned fruits, & then minerals. Delicious on the palate. Clearly of grand cru caliber, but without the stuffiness & pretense that often comes with the pedigree. From a lot of 6 purchased in May 2015 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer. [Rayner Cheung]   * **Bienvenues–Bâtard–Montrachet** (Nov. 2016 – Oct. 2018): 6 btls not oxidized.

 +  * **Montrachet** (Jul. & Sep. 2020): 2 btls not oxidized. Stunning wine, fresh as a daisy, & with more development potential. White flowers & candied orchard fruits in the nose. Rounded & complex on the palate, rich but with plenty of grip. From a lot of 2 purchased in Jan. 2018 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer. Either I have been extrememly lucky with Sauzet in this vintage, or else they made exceptionally robust wines of outstanding quality that year. [Rayner Cheung]

 +  * **Chevalier Montrachet** (Sept 2020): Not oxidised [Jammy Wine]
 +  * **Chevalier–Montrachet** (May 2021): Not oxidized. Pale yellow gold. Riveting: this is classic Sauzet & classic 2008 white Burgundy. Citrus & citrus blossom in the nose. Plenty of bracing acidity on the palate, but the underlying richness of the fruit is not to be underestimated. Purchased in Jul. 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)?
