(50% frosted) Rather exotic, oaky aromas of orchard fruits and banana; distinct suggestion of surmaturite Fat, sweet and stuffed with ripe fruit; flavors of pineapple in syrup and honey. Suave, rich and chewy but not aggressive. This has impressive volume and solid underlying structure. The concentration and stuffing are largely due to the degenerating vines, which typically produce tiny grapes. A bit warm on the end, like most of these 2003s.
Demure notes of grilled oak and minerals can be found in the aromatic profile of the 2003 Batard-Montrachet (white). Somewhat tight on the palate, with aeration it reveals outstanding depth, concentration, and balance. Its flavor profile, composed of spices, minerals, and buttered toast, lingers in its extensive finish. (PR)
Here the nose is less obviously toasty with very ripe peach, pear and hints of fennel and an interesting straw note that highlights the rich, powerful exceptionally dense flavors underpinned by plenty of dry extract and a beautifully well-balanced finish. To be sure, there is plenty of size and weight here yet the overall impression is more one of elegance than muscle.
Rich and ripe, this white exhibits floral, cream and apricot notes. It's awkward and needs time to integrate, yet delivers moderate intensity followed by a good finish... (BS)
