We call this "baby Montrachet" at K&L because it has both the richness and the elegance you might expect from a fine $40-$60 white from the Cote d'Beaune, but for much less. While we get a number of different commune whites from Bavard each year, the Monthelie is the gold standard. It's equal parts crisp, mineral-driven, racy acidity and ripe, round, subtly-oaked richness. 2014 is the best I've tasted from this wine since I've worked here, so add that an incredible vintage into the mix.
