While I have huge respect for the many talented, multi-generational domaines working in historic terroirs, producing excellent wine year after year, it is interesting to me how an outsider, or at least one not long involved on the production side of the business, can make excellent wines due to their palate preferences, context for wine tasting, work ethic, and savoir faire. Bavard is a perfect example. The Saint Romain Sous Le Chateau is so bright, with so much drive, that if you're like me and love such whites you may almost forget its capacity to put on weight and intensity with a few years of bottle age. So, enjoy now but don't forget to stash a few away for later!
