While I loved the plush, sensual nature of the toasted, mineral-scented 2002 Batard-Montrachet, it does not possess the levels of concentration found in the Pucelles. Medium-bodied, rich, and deep, this tangy, mineral-flavored offering is a candidate for drinking over the next 8 years.

To Pierre Morey, the 2002s are “from normal yields and reflect their terroir, two signs of a great vintage.” He went on to add, “Though it was an easy year in the vineyard without any burnt grapes, freezes, or hail, I’ll admit we were very worried between the twentieth of August and tenth of September, when the weather was wet and dreary. Thankfully, we were saved by the north wind.” He added that in 2003, Puligny-Montrachet had battled freeze, multiple hailstorms, and oidium (powdery mildew).
