(aging in a single new barrique): Bright, light yellow. Expressive aromas of pineapple, white flowers, menthol and complementary oak. Sappy and tactile on the palate, offering considerable power but also noteworthy refinement and inner-mouth aromatic perfume to its flavors of pineapple, peach and spices. This suave Bienvenue-Batard spreads out horizontally to dust the entire mouth and really glistens on the long finish.
Smoke-tinged aromas consist mostly of honeysuckle and pear where additional nuance is present in the form of citrus, spice and soft wood. As is usually the case, the medium-bodied flavors are finer if less obviously powerful with a super-refined mouth feel that also characterizes the beautifully persistent finish. This will need to add some depth in bottle yet the underlying material very much appears to be present such that this can occur. *Don't miss!*
