Tasting Notes

Maison Jacques Bavard is a tiny negociant producer in Puligny-Montrachet. He comes from a long line of wine-growers, and is dedicated to working with organic and biodynamic growers. We found him a few years ago on a tip, and found the purity of his wines to be most impressive. Thanks to importing his wines directly, we have them available at a very modest price. Tasting notes from the producer: "Near Meursault and adjoining Volnay, the wines from this village combine power, precision, and volume. The soil is mainly limestone, ideal for Chardonnay. With bottle age, the wine shows rich mango pulp and guava fruit on the nose. Beautiful with intense cheeses like Chambertin, Epoisses, and Citeaux."

    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.
