2017 Chateau de la Maltroye Bourgogne Blanc
Top Pick!
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A smoky nose reveals notes of straw, ripe pear and plenty of petrol influence. There is both good vibrancy and solid volume to the delicious and focused flavors that conclude in a clean, dry and crisp finish that is quite refreshing. This nicely complex offer should drink well early and with a few years of bottle age on it. *Outstanding, Top Value*" (06/2019)
Price: $29.99

91-94 points Vinous: "(Cournut describes these old vines--60 years old, on average--as 'the best expression of Morgeot,' adding that they produce a fatter style of wine): Complex, inviting aromas of white peach, lemon and minerals. Intense flavors of fresh peach and apricot show a lovely supple texture as well as firm supporting minerality, with a note of sweet oak adding appeal. Finishes sappy, smooth and long, with terrific fruity persistence. I could drink this tonight! Clearly an outstanding vintage for this cuvée. (The Chassagne-Montrachet Clos du C...

Château de la Maltroye is a Burgundian wine estate in Chassagne-Montrachet, boasting a superb 18th century château sitting on top of cellars dating back to the 1400s. Quality has increased greatly since the early 1990s when Jean-Pierre Cornut took over the estate. Allen Meadows of Bourghound says: "Jean-Pierre Cournut had evident relief in his voice when he told me that the 2017 'growing season was so much easier than the seriously difficult 2016 season that had us chasing our tails for most of it. … The fruit was clean and ripe and required almost no ch...

2017 Chateau de la Maltroye Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru
Top Pick!
89-92 points Vinous: "Bright yellow. Pungent mineral-driven aromas of menthol and crushed stone. Fine-grained and concentrated, with a lovely touch of sweetness supported by impeccable acid balance. A bit reduced today but already conveys excellent breadth and an impression of rocky density. Finishes with lovely length and lift. (I also sampled the two main components of Jean-Pierre Cournut's village Chassagne but it was too early to get an accurate idea of the ultimate blend. The sample from the Puligny side showed lovely citrus and mineral cut and refi...

92-94 points Vinous: "Bright, light yellow. High-pitched scents of spices and menthol. At once powerful and elegant, with its sappy citrus flavors currently playing second fiddle to terroir-driven crushed-rock minerality. Wonderfully dense and broad, yet the overall impression is one of weightlessness, no doubt owing in part to the relatively low potential alcohol here (12.5%, chaptalized to about 13.3%). This superb expression of soil finishes with outstanding rising length. (ST)" (09/2018) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This too is quite punge...

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again a deft touch of wood can be found on the aromas of resin, pear liqueur and apple. There is very good verve to the nicely detailed if not especially dense flavors that possess more refinement than usual before concluding in a solidly lingering finish. This well-made effort should repay 5 to 8 years of cellaring." (06/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromas of ripe pear, hazelnuts, mandarin oil and fresh peach introduce the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Village, a medium to full-bodied, generous and fl...

2017 Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot"
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "Very restrained and gently flinty with a wealth of pithy-grapefruit and mineral notes. This has very attractive and mouthwatering young peaches and lemons with grilled hazelnuts to close. Concentrated and energetic. Drink or hold. " (01/2019) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An overtly floral nose blends notes of apple and pear with those of orange peel and a hint of petrol. There is fine density to the round and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess an almost creamy mid-palate that contrasts somewhat with the citru...

2017 Chateau de la Maltroye Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos du Chateau"
Top Pick!
90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very pungent nose is composed by notes of petrol, smoke and sulfur that are enough to bury the fruit at present so I would suggest decanting this first if you’re tempted to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is good punch if only average density to the delicious and appealingly stony medium weight flavors that terminate in a dry, clean and citrusy finish." (06/2019)

2017 Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "En Virondot"
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "Set in an isolated position on the slope above the village, En Virondot is the highest Chassagne premier cru, at 350 metres. A Marc Morey exclusive, it's a remarkable site that comes into its own in hotter years. Pithy and taut, it's chiselled, sculpted, knife-edge stuff with stylish oak and impressive focus and persistence. (TA)" (10/2018) 93 points James Suckling: "Two-hectare parcel and, apart from one tiny part, owned by the domaine. A quasi-monopole of sorts. Very floral and mineral nose with some fresh-herb notes, as well as ...

2017 Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Vergers"
Top Pick!
94 points Decanter: "Another Marc Morey wine that's returning after a frost-induced break in 2016, this is a delicate, refined Chassagne from Sabine Mollard with fresh, white flower and blossom aromas, scented oak, some baking spice sweetness and a core of pithy, zesty acidity. (TA)" (10/2018) 93 points James Suckling: "A steely edge to the pithy grapefruit and lemon aromas with stony and slightly flinty nuances. The palate has a very precise and fresh, taut feel. Great, succulent fruit with driving acidity. A lot of pleasure here. Super minerally. Dri...

91-93 points Vinous: "Palish yellow. Highly aromatic scents of yellow fruits, flowers and clove, plus a slightly exotic passion fruit nuance shared by a number of these wines (from the yeasts?). Concentrated and quite tasty, conveying an impression of solidity to the flavors of peach oil, spices and menthol. The most powerful of these '17s, finishing chewy and quite long. (13.3% alcohol)(ST)" (09/2018) K&L Notes: 97 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "The holding is just on the Chassagne side of the vineyard. Clear brisk pale colour. The nose is won...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain is showing very well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with a lovely bouquet that mingles citrus oil and mandarin with notes of white flowers and green apple. Medium to full-bodied, enveloping and textural, it's deep and concentrated, with fine tension at the core and a long, saline finish. (WK)" (01/2020) 90-92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Champs Gain 1er Cru has a tad more complexity and vigour than the Les Chenevottes at the moment,...

93-95 points Vinous: "(just one and a half barrels produced from vines planted in 1936): Extremely reduced on the nose. Then concentrated, sappy and sweet on the palate, with its impression of solidity leavened by surprising acidity. As large-scaled as the Dent de Chien but showing less personality in the early going in spite of its energy. Finishes with strong salinity, serious structure and outstanding grip. This wine will require extended aging before it approaches its peak.(ST)" (09/2018) 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An extremely pretty an...

88-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Pungent aromas of petrol, resin, rosemary oil and citrus precede the juicy, succulent and fleshy medium weight flavors that possess fine mid-palate volume before terminating in a balanced and delicious finale. This relatively forward effort isn't refined though it stops short of being rustic." (06/2019) Jancis Robinson: "Tasted blind. Sweet and flattering – rather floral – on the nose. Racy and transparent. Some real vigour and transparency. This should age well, but definitely needs food. 16.5/20 points. (JR)" ...

92 points James Suckling: "Very attractive aromatic definition with an array of stones, minerals, yellow and white peaches and a bright, almost floral edge. Beautiful elegance and purity on the long palate. The peach, grilled-hazelnut and yellow-citrus flavors hold long. " (01/2019) 91 points John Gilman: "The 2017 Chassagne AC was also bottled in early October and was really showing well in November. The bouquet is precise, pure and really shares some aromatic signature notes with the Marquis de Laguiche Morgeot this year, as it offers up a lovely ble...

98 points James Suckling: " This is youthfully restrained for now with exotic essence of lemon, lime and grapefruit. The intensity and purity of the aromas is really captivating. Strong, flinty minerals and stones, too. The palate has a very plush, richly textural and expansive feel with extremely powerful tension between exceptionally concentrated citrus fruit and extremely intense acidity. Wow! Try from 2022. " (01/2019) 97 points John Gilman: "As all of the vines for the Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet are on the Puligny side of thevineyard, the fros...

89-91 points Vinous: "Pale yellow. Pear and white flowers on the nose. Concentrated but stony and closed on the palate, showing less fruit in the early going than the Chenevottes. Tactile, salty wine with good breadth but only moderate length and grip. Incidentally, these virused, very old (about 70 years) vines, which typically yield very small grapes, produced less than 40 hectoliters per hectare in 2017 after suffering badly from the frost in 2016, and Céline Fontaine told me that they need to be replanted soon. (ST)" (09/2018) 90 points Allen Meado...

94 points Wine Spectator: "Lush and viscous, yet seamlessly balanced by its lively acidity, this white should bring a lot of pleasure for its peach, butter pastry, toasted vanilla and hazelnut flavors. Harmonious and long, with all its elements melding on the long aftertaste. (BS)" (09/2019) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A relatively pungent nose reflects notes of lemon rind, quine, resin, apple and pretty floral-suffused aromas. There is excellent volume to the attractively textured and notably more concentrated middle weight flavors that exud...

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Smoke and petrol-tinged aromas offer up notes of white peach, lemon zest and a hint of apricot. There is once again excellent volume to the intense and vibrant medium weight plus flavors that possess a caressing yet muscular mouth feel, all wrapped in a lingering and balanced finish. This will need to add a bit more depth to merit my rating but the underlying material seems more than sufficient for that to occur. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (06/2019) K&L Notes: 92 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "The soil ...

93 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe version, hinting at pineapple and mango, aligned to butterscotch and vanilla from the toasty oak. It’s flamboyant, with a lingering tasty aftertaste. (BS)" (09/2019) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Soft floral-infused aromas display an appealing breadth with nuances of citrus, white and yellow orchard fruit, lavender and a touch of resin. There is excellent richness and mid-palate density to the broad-shouldered flavors that evidence good power and drive on the balanced and satisfying finish. While this is not es...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This climat is typically one of the more incisive wines in the Ramonet range, but the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is in fact unusually rich. Offering up notes of citrus oil, ripe peaches, honeycomb and almond paste, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and textural, with lively acids but considerable flesh on its structural bones. (WK)" (01/2020)
Price: $189.99

90-93 points Vinous: "Pear and white peach dominate the nose. Strong orchard and white stone fruit flavors are framed and energized by lemon-zest acidity and an element of saline minerality. The wine's white fruit flavors and mineral tension will need time to harmonize, but there's enough thickness of texture here to support at least mid-term aging. The spicy, long, rising finish saturates the palate with orchard fruits and lemon salt. The Moreaus routinely pick this vineyard early to avoid notes of surmaturité, according to Alexandre. (ST)" (09/2018) ...

Roche de Bellene is the micro-négociant operation of Nicolas Potel, founded in 2009. After a strange twist during a split with his business partner, Potel is no longer involved with the eponymous Domaine Nicolas Potel, instead focusing his full energy on the old-vine expressions of RdB. This Chassagne-Montrachet VV hails from vines averaging 55 years in age, this wine was vinified in large, 500L barrels then aged for 13 months in 20% new wood. Producer's notes: "Our obsession at Bellene with old vines and low yields worked to our advantage in 2017. The...

97 points James Suckling: "This has incredible aromatic definition with lemons, limes and grapefruit, as well as stony elements with oranges and praline. The palate has a beautifully precise feel with very bright citrus and white peaches, leading to gentle lime-marmalade and hazelnut notes to close. Super long, focused and already approachable. Drink or hold." (02/2019) 94-96 points Vinous: "Captivating nose melds tangerine zest, lemon, lime, clove, anise, white pepper and crushed stone, complicated by an exotic hint of passion fruit and lifted by meta...

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "from a .30 ha parcel in Chassagne). A deft touch of wood surrounds the aromas of equally restrained and quite floral, lemon zest and subtle spice hints. The ripe and rich large-scaled flavors are relatively fine while delivering a balanced, linear and superbly persistent finish that is notably dry. This too is very much built-to-age but in contrast to the Criots, this is going to need at least a decade of cellaring first. *Don't Miss!*" (06/2019) 95 points Decanter: "The Fontaines' four parcels, totalling 0.4ha, ar...

93-95 points Vinous: "Bright medium yellow. Ripe peach and spices on the nose, plus an element of menthol minerality that reminded me of the Chenevottes. But this wine is at another level of concentration and tension, offering fully ripe yet saline and brisk flavors of yellow stone fruits, spices, flowers and minerals. Chewy, tactile and very long, with a spectacular resounding finish. This beauty boasts near-grand cru penetration and elegance. (ST)" (09/2018) 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " There is enough sulfur present to push the softly e...


90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off the overtly floral-inflected nose of various white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in spice hints. The reasonably concentrated and nicely rich medium-bodied flavors possess better depth on the sappy and lemony finish." (06/2019) 90-92 points Vinous: " Nose muted by a recent second dose of SO2. Broad but light on its feet, with white peach and apple aromas accented by spices and flowers. Not especially fleshy or sweet--or at least it's not in an opulent ph...

91-94 points Vinous: "Full medium yellow. Elegant, pure scents of minerals and flowers, plus a subtle hint of oak char. Suave and precise on the palate, with flavors of white stone fruits, spices and spring flowers lifted by a stony element. Not an opulent style or especially sweet but intensely flavored and nicely balanced, finishing with subtle rising length. Very pure, understated white Burgundy. (ST)" (09/2018) 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A slightly exotic nose is comprised by aromas of white peach, essence of pear, matchstick and a hi...

97 points Wine Spectator: "This intense white offers smoky aromas and flavors, along with citronella, lime blossom, hazelnut, peach and buttered brioche notes. Creamy, featuring an aftertaste that lingers in a subtle, ethereal way. (BS)" (11/2019) 96 points Decanter: "Niellon's 0.22ha block of Chevalier-Montrachet touches Le Montrachet and was planted in 1962. Small berries have produced a remarkable wine with a winning combination of weight and precision. Yeasty, oatmealy, subtly wooded and complex, this has tangerine, aromatic spice and citrus zest i...

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An overtly floral nose blends notes of quinine with those of honeysuckle, spice, citrus and a whisper of the exotic. There is more volume and powerful if a bit less refinement to the imposingly scaled flavors that possess a seductively textured mid-palate that contrasts somewhat with the bitter lemon-inflected finish. This too is really very good and a wine that should amply repay extended cellaring." (06/2019) 93 points Decanter: "This wine is sourced from an old-vine parcel that was planted in 1954 in the Tête...

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "from Les Rebichets). Here too there is a whiff of the exotic present on the ripe but cool nose of dried white and yellow orchard fruit that includes hints of mango, wood and spice. There is slightly better energy to the succulent middle weight flavors that possess slightly more mid-palate density, all wrapped in a bitter lemon and nicely refreshing finish where the supporting acidity is mildly firmer." (06/2019) 91 points John Gilman: "I know I am in the minority, but every time a I taste an example of Clos St. Jea...

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A penetrating nose features notes of resin, white orchard fruit and petrol nuances. There is both good energy and volume to the moderately concentrated medium weight flavors that offer acceptable depth on the attractively energetic finish." (06/2019) K&L Notes: 90 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "From 6 plots including Chaumes, Houillères and Masures and 30% 1er cru from Champgains and Bois de Chassagne. This is a fleshy style of Chassagne with good density and a long aftertaste with excellent mineral acidity and a...

Vinous: "The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Goujonne Rouge, is raised in 20% new oak with 50% whole bunches, has a delightful red cherry and cranberry scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, quite sharp on the entry but with fine precision on the finish. Fine." (01/2019) K&L Notes: From the importer: "One would be hard pressed to find a better white wine maker in all of Burgundy than Olivier Lamy. Most of his holdings are located in the so-called “secondary” appellation of Saint-Aubin, with only a few wines outside of the appellation...

94 points Decanter: "This old-vine 0.72ha parcel touches the Clos St-Jean at the northern end of the village, and is one of the fresher, pithier wines in the domaine's range in 2017. It has good weight and concentration but also plenty of acidity, framed by aromatic oak. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025. (TA)" (12/2018) 92 points John Gilman: "In vintage that offer very good early appeal, I often fine that Vergers and Chenevottes are the two most seductive premier crus out of the blocks in the village of Chassagne, and both of these cuvées are irresistible ...

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Boudriotte" ((91-93VN), 92BH, 92JG, 92RP). Vinous: "(from red soil in the lieu-dit Les Fairendes; one of the three sets of vines here is 100 years old, according to Fontaine): Bright, light yellow. Vibrant perfume of lemon peel and lime blossom. Dense, supple and silky, offering excellent definition to its citrus, floral and powdered stone flavors. Spreads out and mounts slowly on the echoing, rising finish. (ST)" (09/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Criots-Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru (95JG, (92-95VN), 94BH, 94DC, 94RP). Vinous: "(These old vines, some of which were planted in the 1930s, produce very small grapes and "never a big yield," according to Fontaine): Bright lemon-yellow. The nose offers a wet stone aroma along with an element of honey. Fat and dense, even glyceral, but with surprising lemony acidity neutralizing its slight impression of sweetness. Conveys an impression of substantial alcohol but not particularly honeyed in the mouth. Finishes savory and smooth, with lovely building length. A potentially superb vintage for this bottling. (ST)" (09/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Maltroie" ((89-91VN), 90BH, 90JG). Vinous: "Pale yellow. Pear and white flowers on the nose.
