Batàr, Querciabella 2013
The 2013 Batàr is quite beautiful. Lemon oil, white flowers, almonds and a hint of orange peel are laced together in an effortless, gracious white endowed with real personality. This is the first vintage that includes a clone of Pinot Blanc sourced from Henri Gouges in Nuits St. Georges and that also seems to reflect a more polished, refined style. A revisited approach to pruning that allows yields to be naturally a bit higher than in the past and less new oak during aging seem to be paying off.
