Tasting Notes

The 1997 Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet possesses a much more austere nose than the Pucelles. With coaxing, it reluctantly displays white flowers, almonds, and citrus fruits. This broad, medium-to-full-bodied, undeniably rich wine boasts a delicious array of minerals, clay, toast, stones and toasty pears. It is silky-textured, well-focused, concentrated, and combines impressive ripeness with balance. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2008+.

91/92+
