John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

The Chartron's parcel in Batard-Montrachet was devastated by frost damage and the crop was off by a full 70% in 2016. It is too bad there is so little wine here in this vintage, as the wine has turned out very well indeed. The bouquet is very pure and still very primary in personality, with full body, a rock solid core of fruit, racy acids and a very long, broad-shouldered and nascently complex finish. This is very early days for this wine still, bit it will prove to be outstanding. 2023-2050.


Wine Advocate - Neal Martin

The 2016 Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru was reduced from four to three barrels because of the frost. It has a fine peach skin, red apples and cold slate scented bouquet that opens with confidence with aeration. The palate is fresh on the entry, very focused and with a keen line of acidity. Very harmonious with superb salinity on the finish that keeps you coming back. Due to be bottled by Easter, try and bag one of the 750 odd bottles.


Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"

20-25 hl/ha this year.

A little barrel spice (here a mix of a newer and older barrels) yellow fruit below. A little gas. Very impressive width, and flavour that saturates the palate. Fine freshness, but this is a wine of density and weight of flavour. It will really need some time in bottle.

Very classic, powerful wines and very serious in style.
