2019 Henri Boillot Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru
A softly exotic nose blends notes of lavender, acacia and spice along with hints of orange and lemon zest. There is excellent concentration to the powerful broad-shouldered flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers the chiseled, precise and super-saline finish. This is a breathtakingly good Bâtard though note well that it's indisputably built to reward extended cellaring. Drink 2034+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is showing well, opening in the glass to reveal aromas of pear, clear honey, buttered toast, mandarin oil and white flowers. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's rich but tightly wound, with a deep core of fruit, bright acids and a long, penetrating finish. Drink 2025 - 2045.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The rows of vines run the full length of the appellation at the border between the two communes. Pale lemon with a light lime touch. Solid concentrated charming nose, but not fat or heavy. Extra intensity, some barrel, more flesh, then brought up at the back by the citrus fruit notes.
