Only one barrel of this tremendous Grand Cru exists in 2012. The Bâtard-Montrachet vineyard straddles both the Chassagne and Puligny appellations; Marc-Antonin’s wine comes entirely from the Chassagne sector, from impeccably-situated vines lying just across the road from Le Montrachet. Green-gold colour, this has splendid, rich, openly fruity aromas. This wine is remarkable for its concentration, fine, creamy texture, elegant middle and beautiful, refreshing aftertaste. There is great power here, currently tightly locked within a well-defined frame – this will make wonderful drinking when young, vibrant and tense but will be equally magnificent once it has opened and filled out with bottle age (for drinking 2015-2022+).
