The Wine:
This year, the Dancers did not harvest enough fruit to make even a traditional-sized barrique of their top 1er Crus, nor the Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet. Instead, they took the decision to make a blend of all four parcels. So, this incredibly rare, one-off bottling comprises a roughly equal amount of Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Tête du clos, Meursault 1er Cru Perrières and Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet. Tasted with Théo Dancer last year, it is a stunning, deep yet chiselled wine with a length of flavour that stays with you for minutes. Obviously, by blending across villages, Dancer has had to declassify this wine—and chose Vin de France instead of the risker option of Bourgogne Blanc! Of course, this will have little bearing on a wine that is set to become a unicorn. Oskar is the name of Théo Dancer’s Australian Shepard.
