In a very good year for the white grands crus of the Côte de Beaune (provided people didn't pick too late), this stylish expression of the terroir is right up there with the very best of them. Focussed, serious and dense, it has richness and concentration, with scented oak, some baking spices and palate-cleansing acidity. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030. (TA)
Aromas of fresh pear, ripe citrus fruit, dried white flowers and praline introduce the 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, elegantly textural wine with a ripe core of fruit, excellent tension at the core, bright acids and chalky structuring extract, concluding with a lively, saline finish. Nicely integrated and impressively complete, it's one of the finer Bâtards I've tasted from Faiveley. (WK)
The 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a more introspective bouquet compared to the Bienvenue, perhaps more malic, with a subtle, almost algal scent. The palate is very precise, maybe a bit "meaner" and more Chablis-like than the Bienvenue, but almost Zen-like toward the finish. It does not have the charm of the Bienvenues and frankly, it isn’t trying to. This is more a cerebral, terroir-driven wine.(NM)
