RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

Ound, sweet and expressive, the wine saturates the palate with masses of fruit in a bold, powerful style that is utterly irresistible. The finish is intense and resonant in all directions.

93-96Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of peach, white flowers and linden tea, plus a hint of honey. Then rich, ripe and opulent in the mouth, boasting a much more silky texture, and greater power, than the Bienvenues (there's less topsoil here).

92Wine Spectator

A sleek, focused white, showing butter, honey, peach and baked apple flavors. There's a textural component that suggests light tannins, with a long honey finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet

Batard-Montrachet is one of the four great Grand Cru Chardonnay vineyards in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet, in Burgundy. Like its neighbor Le Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet also lies partly in the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation just to the south of Puligny-Montrachet. At 30 acres, Batard-Montrachet is the largest of four Grand Crus and it is divided into nearly 30 individually owned parcels. Located just to the east of Le Montrachet, the soil of Batard-Montrachet is deeper and less thin. The largest landholders are Leflaive, with 4.5 acres; Ramonet, 1.2 acres; Bachelet-Ramonet, 1.4 acres; and Paul Pernot, 1.5 acres.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, Grand Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
