Tasting Notes

A background application of wood frames the ripe, fresh and complex aromas that flash just a whiff of exoticism on the white and yellow peach, tangerine and spiced tea-scented nose. There is plenty of sap present on the big-bodied flavors that are more mineral-driven than usual while exhibiting outstanding length on the bone dry and impressively long and youthfully austere finale. This is an elegant yet powerful Bâtard.

Score: 95

From vines that straddle the border of Chassagne and Puligny and which run from the top to the bottom of the appellation, the 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is superb, wafting from the glass with notes of ripe citrus, beeswax, dried flowers, hazelnut paste and fresh pear. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied deep and concentrated, with a broad-shouldered, layered core that's liberally endowed with chewy extract, yet a sense of elegance and purity that marks this out as one of the finest renditions of Bâtard-Montrachet to be found along the Côte.

Score: 94 - 96

Bright yellow. Lively and decidedly less exotic on the nose than the Criots-Bâtard, offering aromas of yellow fruits, flowers, hazelnut and saline minerality. Dense, tactile and deep, this sappy, mineral-driven wine already displays grand cru class. Really inundates the palate with fruits, flowers and minerals on the savory, inexorable back end.

Score: 93 - 96
