Batard Montrachet 2015 Jadot
|Streek||Bourgogne, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2015 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru is much more reserved on the nose than the 2015 Bienvenues - austere, stony and stoic, gaining intensity after 5-10 minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp line of acidity, a slight bitterness on the back palate but it fans out nicely to a spicy finish, even if it does not quite have the panache of the Bienvenues at the moment.

Sleek and intense, this is laced with peach, apple, lemon tart, honey, vanilla, toasted brioche and mineral flavors. Packed with energy, this builds to a long, tangy finish. Well-proportioned and resonant.
