Ramonet Batard Montrachet 2014 - $950
6 bottles available

96 points Wine Advocate - The 2014 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru offers up notes of citrus zest, pastry cream, subtle noisette and a framing of new oak—the prelude to a wine that is notably more tight knit and unyielding than the Bienvenues. There’s lots of power and cut here, but so much is currently held in reserve, and cellaring will be essential to realize its full potential. Interestingly, one parcel of the Ramonet's holdings in Bâtard-Montrachet adjoins their parcel of Bienvenues, but the other parcel is in the middle of the vineyard on the border of Chassagne and Puligny, and perhaps that explains why these grands crus are generally so different.

Ramonet Chassagne Ruchottes 2017 - $315
12 bottles available

93 points Burghound - There is a vaguely phenolic character (think olive oil nuances) to the ripe mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit, soft wood and pretty spice wisps. There is excellent volume and particularly so for the vintage to the medium-bodied and exceptionally rich flavors that are at once caressing yet powerful while delivering fine length and outstanding complexity on the clean and markedly dry finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This youthfully austere effort is clearly built-to-age and in contrast to some of the prior wines, I would not be inclined to drink this young. (Drink starting 2027)

Henri Boillot Puligny Clos de la Mouchere 2017 - $159
18 bottles available

94 points Burghound -  A touch of mineral reduction can be found on the markedly floral-inflected nose of white peach, spice and discreet wood nuances. There is first-rate volume to the caressing yet powerful flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density before concluding in a highly energetic, complex and beautifully well-balanced finale. This isn't quite as structured as the Pucelles but it is still sufficiently prominent to make evident that here too patience will be rewarded. (Drink starting 2027)

Henri Boillot Meursault Genevrieres 2017 - $159
12 bottles available

94 points Burghound -  There is a whiff of natural exoticism to the strikingly elegant, wafting and overtly floral and spiced tea aromas of mostly white orchard fruit. The cool, precise and restrained flavors possess a wonderfully refined mouth feel while displaying an abundance of minerality on the bitter lemon-inflected, balanced and sneaky long finish. This stunningly good effort is an exercise is refinement and class. (Drink starting 2027)

Hubert Lamy Chassagne Chaumees 2017 - $139
12 bottles available

91-94 points Burghound -  A restrained nose grudgingly offers up mostly notes of matchstick character and a variety of citrus elements that can also be found on the succulent, delicious and more refined medium weight plus flavors that terminate in a pure, focused and wonderfully complex finish that displays terrific persistence. (Drink starting 2027)

Hubert Lamy Chassagne Macherelles 2017 - $120
12 bottles available

90-93 points Burghound -  This is still sporting notes of the malolactic fermentation. Otherwise there is outstanding intensity to the lemon-inflected medium weight flavors that display excellent length though not much complexity at present. My sense is that there is fine underlying material and that as this progresses and cleans up that it will add depth and harmony and my projected range implicitly assumes that will occur over time. (Drink starting 2025)

Hubert Lamy Chassagne Chaumees 2015 - $139
12 bottles available

91-94 points Burghound - Notes of smoky reduction don't quite completely mask the ripe liqueur-like aromas of white peach and pear. Like the Macherelles, the palate impression of the medium-bodied flavors that also brim with sappy dry extract that confers a highly seductive mouth feel onto the saline, focused and moderately tightly wound finale. While this impressively complex effort could be enjoyed young, there is plenty of upside development potential. (Drink starting 2023)

Marc Colin Chassagne Vide Bourse 2019 - $105
24 bottles available

92-94 points Vinous - The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vides Bourses 1er Cru is compelling on the bouquet with white chocolaty and shaved almond flakes complementing the orange pith and dessicated orange peel scents. The palate is very well balanced with a saline entry. A fine bead of acidity here and a very compact finish that augur for a Chassagne that will benefit from 3-5 years in the cellar. Great potential. (Drink between 2023-2040)

Marc Colin St Aubin Charmois 2018 - $60 (some in stock)
10 bottles available

92-94 points Vinous - The 2018 Saint-Aubin Le Charmois 1er Cru, which comes from vines located on an east-facing slope on limestone-rich soils, has a strict, austere and utterly compelling bouquet that would embarrass many more expensive Puligny-Montrachets. The palate is an absolute joy with pretty citrus fruit intermingling with peach skin and spices, but it’s the mineral drive that takes over toward the finish and says, "I own this wine." Brilliant. (Drink between 2022-2045)
