Description

The 2014 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a very composed and refined bouquet, citrus fruit and apple blossom, fine mineral tones here, a touch of smoke. The palate is fresh on the entry and to be honest, it does not quite match the complexity of the aromatics. Hopefully it will develop more personality and nuance during the remainder of its maturation. Let’s see if this steps up to the plate once in bottle.

– Neal Martin, Robertparker.com, Score: 89-91

 

Rather medicinal aromas of clove and menthol. Distinctly old-style, slightly rough Batard, with nothing gentle about it (“not the Giorgio Armani style of Batard,” notes Saouma). Incredibly backward today, with its fruit in the deep background. There’s something a bit rustic about this very powerful Batard, which finishes with serious tannic spine and outstanding length and lift. A bit of a cipher today, this will need extended cellaring.
