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.

    Lemon crème, green apple and white flower aromas dominate this fantastic white. On the palate citrus fruits and apple flavors mingle with bright acidity and mineral notes. The wine has a laser-beam like focus and the finish just goes-on-and-on.
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2020

    One of my faves from this year's Bavard line up but you have to appreciate its finer boned structure. This parcel high on the slope in St-Romain always seems to give a more elegant, mineral driven style with a more linear mouthfeel and delicate floral top notes. The oak fills in nicely on the finish giving great persistence and just subtly taking the edge of this wines piercing acidity. Good stuff!

    This is my absolute favorite bottling from Jacques Bavard, and the 2014 vintage does not disappoint! In fact, it may be my favorite vintage of this wine to date. Although the wine has plenty of fruit and flesh up front, it is tempered nicely by elegant acidity, and has a depth of minerality that is hard to match. Like all of the Bavard whites, the "Sous le Chateau" sees some time in oak, but this affects the texture more than the flavor. The intensity of the mineral and fruit here is the overarching theme, with the other elements of oak and acidity highlighting rather than masking the purity of the wine.

    This wine comes from one of the best sites in St-Romain “Sous le Chateau”. This wine shows the most potential for a bit of cellaring. It is very tight and focused with tons of acidity and mineral hints that carry through to the finish. It shows excellent verve and tension.
