The 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a more masculine, introspective and earthier bouquet compared to the Bienvenue. The strictness and focus here are superb. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. There is good tension, saline and spicy in the mouth, animated even. Whilst it does not quite deliver the persistence at the moment, by the time it is in bottle that should be in situ. This is a very impressive Bâtard-Montrachet. (NM)
(ten hectoliters per hectare produced; 13.1% natural alcohol): Bright, pale yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of mirabelle and white flowers. Broad, classically dry and utterly fine-grained, showing lovely inner-mouth floral perfume. Finishes with rising length and a slightly phenolic quality, leaving behind musky and resiny suggestions. Outstanding potential here. (ST)
A pungent and more expressive nose offers up a broad assortment of aromas that include notes of matchstick, white orchard fruit and in particular white peach, exotic tea and plenty of citrus nuances. The mouth feel of the big-bodied flavors is notably more refined than usual yet the underlying power of a fine Bâtard is certainly present and especially so on the hugely long, firm and built-to-age finish. In a word, impressive.
No tasting note given.
The 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet is a bit more reserved than the domaine’s Bienvenues this year, with a simply stunning aromatic constellation and impeccable focus and balance on the palate. The bouquet soars from the glass in a vibrant constellation of pear, apple, a touch of orange zest, incipient notes of beeswax, pastry cream, chalky soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and displays superb mid-palate depth, with racy acids and outstanding backend mineral drive on the long and zesty finish. There are already hints of the candied lemon elements to come here at maturity and this is absolutely stellar in 2015. 2020 - 2050.
