Domaine Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

$649

The 2010 Batard-Montrachet covers every inch of the palate with fruit. In 2010, the Batard is towering, statuesque and simply impeccable. Today the aromas and flavors are not at all developed, rather the wine is really all about textural elegance and finesse, and there is plenty of that here. A huge, explosive finish rounds things out in style. The Batard is a wine of contrasts. At times it is quite bold and extroverted, at others it possesses admirable restraint. Either way, it is magnificent... eRobertParker.com (Antonio Galloni)

Really open with ripe honeyed fruit and oyster shell minerality underneath. Yellow flowers, a rich mouthfeel. Lush and opulent. Surprisingly advanced but very enjoyable.

Light gold. Expressive and bright with white flowers, great minerality and a honeyed lemon note. Broad and long. Years ahead. In theory.

This has a glorious nose- wide open and sexy. Lemon notes and broad honeyed complexity with real length. Delicious

Almost Chablis like on the nose with real lift and lime. Corton like on the nose. Great presence. Wonderful stuff.

A brightness on the nose. Lemon oil and white flowers. On the palate lovely body and concentration with a light minerality and beautiful acidity. Very approachable now and long. Fun!

Light lemon colour. Quite rich ripe white fruits, slightly roasted notes. Hazelnut. On the palate very well balanced , high acidity but lots of white fruits, lemon. Long finish, really excellent . Young, but approachable now , I imagine it will improve for a few years and last well for another 15 perhaps . A great wine. In fact the last glass I kept until the following evening , and the wine improved considerably . Much more complex after a day open : buttered vanilla popcorn and lemon curd I noticed with a great mineral backbone fantastic length.
