Critic Notes

The 2015 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru from Pierre-Yves Colin is fabulous, and one of the white wines of the vintage. The youthfully reserved bouquet blossoms in the glass, revealing notes of preserved lemon, petrol, beeswax, toasted nuts and white flowers, continuing to gain in detail and complexity over the course of several days. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and complete, with immense depth and substance, bright acids, and a tight-knit core. For all its power and chewy extract, this is in fact a decidedly reserved, harmonious wine which deserves prolonged aging. Though he doesn't own them, Pierre-Yves farms these 90-year-old vines in Batard (on the Chassagne side, but bordering Puligny), and they clearly knew how to handle the heat in 2015.

Score: 96-/100William Kelley

(13.4% alcohol, the highest of these 2015s; just a single one-year-old 350-liter barrel): Bright yellow. Deep, thoroughly ripe aromas of peach, mirabelle and clove. Sweet, plush and long on extract but with almost shocking freshness for such a fat wine. This very dense, thick wine will need longer in barrel and bottle for its sweetness and penetrating acidity to harmonize. Outstanding potential here. Sep 2016, www.vinous.com

Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Vertical Tasting with Véronique Drouhin
The Drouhin-Laguiche relationship has borne beautiful fruit since the fortuitous meeting of Maurice Drouhin and the Marquis de Laguiche during the Second World War; when they met, became friends and decided to combine the Marquis’ ownership of a prime piece of the already celebrated Montrachet Grand Cru and Maurice’s skills as a négociant. Maurice bought two barrels in 1943 and ...

Joseph Colin - The new Domaine on the Cote de Beaune Block

Consumers could be forgiven for getting a little confused over which one is which! We caught up with Joseph Colin, the newest Colin to go solo, following ...
