This grand cru is unbelievable, possessing everything I could hope for in a white wine. Is this a candidate to merit a perfect score? The Batard-Montrachet is produced from 49 year old vines. This benchmark setting wine has such deep richness on the nose as to almost instill awe in both the taster's heart and palate. Super-ripe fruits, white flowers, mulling spices and sweet toast soar from the glass. This massive wine is a powerful, broad-shouldered, expansive, and mouth-coating monster that managed to retain extraordinary elegance and delineation - a rare combination to achieve. This full-bodied wine offers of layers hazelnuts, roasted peaches, liquid minerals, and candied pears as well as a seemingly unending finish. It is a grand-slam home run! Projected maturity: 2003-2012. Wine Advocate.February, 1998
