Cellar/Tasting Notes
This ample and powerful wine is produced in the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The 2011 Batard Montrachet Grand Cru is rich and full with an ageing potential of ten years or more. A primary example of an excellent, refined, elegant and pleasant grand cru white brugundy.
Burghound (BH): 92-94
"A restrained and borderline inexpressive nose only reluctantly gives up fresh and ripe aromas of white flowers, pear, peach and fennel notes, all of which are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is first-rate intensity to the broad-shouldered and solidly well-concentrated flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the saline, bone dry, long and impeccably well-balanced finish. This is perhaps not quite as complex as one might like but the underlying material is certainly present such that it has a very good chance of developing it plus the persistence is easily the best in the range."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92-94
"Pure, nuanced nose offers orange oil, hazelnut, almond and smoke. Rich and broad in the mouth, but with a surprisingly light touch to the rather powerful pineapple and orange blossom flavors. Quite fine and not at all heavy (this is 13.1% alcohol after a bit of chaptalization) thanks to firm underlying energy. Builds subtly and slowly on the firm back end. Evolving slowly."
