The Bachelet-Monnot Bâtard-Montrachet comes from a 0.14-hectare postage stamp of 50-year-old vines at the cooler, Puligny end of Bâtard (right at the top of the slope and immediately below Le Montrachet) and is planted to a density of 15,000 vines per hectare. This is consistently one of the most mineral and refined examples of Bâtard. Even in sunny vintages, the power associated with this famous site manifests itself as intensity and drive rather than fat. The 2021 wine was raised in a single one-year-old 350-litre barrel. The notes below tell you all you need to know; this is in ‘white of the vintage’ territory. Only six bottles available.

Reviews

“Pale lemon yellow. An immediate class here, the fruit showing its intensity beneath a lightly reductive covering. Class, purity and even intensity, this Bâtard of which alas there is but a single barrel, ticks all the boxes. A lemongrass note adds a touch of complexity to a brilliantly pure white fruit palate. Great persistence. For the medium plus term, but a gorgeous wine in the making. Alexandre tells me that his brother Marc thinks that this is one of their best ever! He may be right.” 96-98 points

"The 2021 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, which is one of the first picked to capture the acidity, comprises just one barrel this year (one year old). It has a very intense bouquet, quite mineral-driven with limestone and sea spray scents, just a subtle reduction on the background. The palate has exquisite balance, fresh on the entry, rather deep with plenty of substance and slightly pithy towards the finish. There is a lot in this Bâtard-Montrachet, and it has impressive persistence. This is one of the standouts from the Grand Cru in this traumatic season - some achievement." 95-97 points
