- Tasting Notes
If the Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet aromatically resembles the Pucelles, the Bâtard is similar to the Folatières thanks to the overtly floral character of the white peach, pear, apple spice and citrus-inflected nose. There is a bit more size, weight and richness to the impressively concentrated medium weight plus flavors that deliver excellent power on the complex, balanced and attractively long finish. This should repay mid-term cellaring but drink well young too.

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Vibrant aromas of lemon and lime peel, white peach and crushed herbs lifted by white flowers; very precise for a young Batard, especially from such a warm year. Wonderfully suave and brisk in the mouth, conveying a lacy texture to its citrus and stone fruit, licorice and fresh herb flavors. The resounding finish is rich, salty and very long. A wonderfully complex young Batard with outstanding potential. It’s often hard to choose between Pernot’s two grand crus in the early going, but not this year.
