The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, with plenty of tangerine and grapefruit notes, but it is the mineralité and tension that really elevate this Grand Cru. For once, this might outperform the La Cabotte. -- Neal Martin

It's creamy and vibrant, picking up flavors of vanilla, clove, butter and pastry as it unfolds on the palate. Terrific equilibrium and length. Best from 2023 through 2032. 60 cases imported. — BS

A dense, layered young white with apples, pears, light creme brulee and lemon curd. It’s tight and reserved, but there is some magic coming out of the glass. Subtle strength. Drink in 2022 and onwards.

Medium to full-bodied, fleshy but precise, it's charming and expressive, showing more of its cards than the 2017 rendition did at the same age, while remaining less overtly muscular than the powerful 2015. This will offer a broad drinking window, as it's already quite demonstrative. As I've written before, this bottling hails from the three terraces on the hillside above Bouchard's La Cabotte, their bottling from the latter—which adjoins Montrachet itself—being more muscular and powerful, whereas this cuvée is finer-boned and more ethereal.- WK
