Tasting Notes

Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar (110), October 2003

Presenting a juxtaposition between its fleshy richness and crystalline character, the honeyed mineral-scented 2001 Batard-Montrachet is a fascinating wine. Deep, sappy, and intense, it offers outstanding concentration and an expressive, quartz-like character. This light to medium-bodied, satin-textured wine should be drunk between 2005 and 2011.

Pierre-Antoine Rovani, Wine Advocate (147), June 2003

A powerhouse of a wine, it roars on the palate. Golden, rich and ripe, with lemon curd, honey and hazelnuts. This thick-textured, spicy, profound, full-throttle white bursts with so much energy, it takes your breath away. Needs years in the cellar before reaching its peak. Best from 2005 through 2025. 125 cases made.
