- Tasting Notes
This is easily the most backward and reserved wine in the range and not just because the nose is very firmly reduced but also because the concentrated, muscular and broad-shouldered flavors are extremely tight. There is so much dry extract that it imparts a chewy texture that is juxtaposed against the firm acid spine that shapes the overtly powerful and hugely long finish. This very serious effort is going to require plenty of patience.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score : 93-95
The 2014 Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru, of which there are three barrels this year (two of them new), has a very intense bouquet: a touch of sea spray and a faint hint of licorice, lime flower and yellow plum. The palate is very well balanced with impressive weight and heft. The acidity is nicely poised, gently building towards a very refined, harmonious finish with lime and Granny Smith apples. It is very persistent Bâtard Montrachet that will give 15-20 years of pleasure.
