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 Monthelie borders Meursault, which, given the savory, nutty yellow fruited profile, comes as no surprise. As per usual with Bavard, this shows wonderfully balance and texture.
