Tasting Notes

The 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is a step up from the Bienvenues this year, with a more noticeable marine influence, touches of oyster shell and sea spray developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity – what you might describe as a nimble Bâtard-Montrachet – and a taut, linear but quite persistent finish. Excellent. (DIAM GC closure)

Score: 92/94Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2019

There are eight barrels of the excellent 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot), an impressive wine that unfurls in the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, pear, pastry cream and honeycomb. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and satiny, with more concentration and cut than this year's Bienvenues, with an elegant sense of completeness and a long, lively finish. This will be well worth seeking out.
