Captured in the wild. Bottom shelf, no price tag, alone. 3 days ago...and this really threw me for a loop. Hands down best Bourgogne Blanc I’ve ever had. Malo, Battonage, oak, on a racy mineral ringing nerve of aligote?! Holding up like a fine 1er Cru white. What the hell?! I can’t believe I haven’t encountered this style anywhere. This is some brazen proof from Denis just how brilliant he is when it comes to making wine. Was really shining about 4 hours after opening, kept singing until it was finished about 20 hours later. Pina colada rich in minerals and acid. Hell yes. — 6 days ago
A little more subdued than I've experienced in the past. Got a lot of resounding citrusy notes throughout the couple days this was open, specifically tangerines coming through clearly. Not sure how to call this but way different than I remember and not in a forward kind of way, almost inaccessible right now. Still enjoyable but for $65 you would expect it to smack you upside the head at least a little. — 17 days ago
Fantastic. Shining right from the beginning with all kinds of regal depth and intensity on the nose; leather, metal, rocks. In the mouth it is light silky and soft with a finish of bright shining Chardonnay. This is a pleasure to drink and great with all sorts of food. The transparency that shows as it evolves in my mouth allows the space for any of the foods this evening to play nicely. Also plenty good by itself. Everyone in any situation should love this wine. Magnum only. Value for sure. — 6 days ago
Drinking over 24 hour period - Fruit—>Flower day. Started tightly wound on the nose with deep mineral and smoke tension hidden. On the palette it’s got so much backbone matched with just the right intensity of red fruit deep mineral Long finish. 24 hours in its giving off faint hints of sage and sandalwood incense like I’ve seen in the Corbeaux and Gevrey. Finish is still ringing on and on. Always overdelivering. Not for everyone. This is for the slow contemplation...a depth of art so definitive of Bachelet throwaways. — 9 days ago
The classiest most complex slut I've been with in a while. So much candy and perfume coming off the manifold with depth, detail, minerality...so hedonistically satisfying I don't even care where this came from. The hype is real. Wish I had a case of this. — 16 days ago
