Etienne Sauzet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

$399

As is typically the case this is slightly riper than the Bienvenues with a pretty and densely fruited nose of white peach, pear, acacia blossom and background hints of citrus and toast. As is also typical, this large-scaled, intense, concentrated and overtly powerful effort is clearly bigger, richer and more imposing than its grand cru partner. The complexity is simply fantastic as is the persistence of the palate staining finish. While I usually am more impressed by finesse and refinement than power as it's much harder to achieve, the extra depth and stunning length of the Batard gives it the nod in 2010...In a word, wow.
