A background application of wood frames the ripe, fresh and complex aromas that flash just a whiff of exoticism on the white and yellow peach, tangerine and spiced tea-scented nose. There is plenty of sap present on the big-bodied flavors that are more mineral-driven than usual while exhibiting outstanding length on the bone dry and impressively long and youthfully austere finale. This is an elegant yet powerful Bâtard.
From vines that straddle the border of Chassagne and Puligny and which run from the top to the bottom of the appellation, the 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is superb, wafting from the glass with notes of ripe citrus, beeswax, dried flowers, hazelnut paste and fresh pear. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied deep and concentrated, with a broad-shouldered, layered core that's liberally endowed with chewy extract, yet a sense of elegance and purity that marks this out as one of the finest renditions of Bâtard-Montrachet to be found along the Côte.
