Batard-Montrachet shares many similarities with its vineyard neighbour Montrachet, not the least of which the ability to express a Chardonnay of power and intensity only found in these revered sites. While the wines are full and rich, they balance this with great levels of acidity, creating thrilling wines that must be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Bâtard-Montrachet 2011 from Olivier Leflaive was poured after Anne-Claude’s and it was not to be overshadowed. It has a wonderful bouquet – real minerality and poise here, not intense but outstanding detail and focus. The palate is crisp and defined, struck through with very good acidity. Yes, it is tight at first, but there is a real peacock’s tail of lime, nectarine and apricot toward the persistent finish that makes you want to go back and take another sip.
Neal Martin - eRobertParker.com Nov 2014
Discreet wood toast notes serve to highlight a relatively elegant, pure and refined nose of soft floral, white peach, pear and subtle spice hints. There is excellent volume and mid-palate density to the round, rich and quite generous big-bodied flavors that possess ample dry extract that coats the mouth on the balanced and focused finish. This is certainly bigger and a bit richer than the Bienvenues but not any longer or more complex. A qualitative choice.
