($236) Explosive aromas of roasted nuts and menthol; very Batard. Huge, sweet and opulent; very ripe and expressive but with firm mineral and citric underpinning. Big, rich and built to last, but definitely tastable today. Sound acids extend the youthfully mentholated finish.

Very pale with a mineral-laden nose. Underneath it is big, bold and fat. Amorphous at the moment but all the ingredients are there. Very slightly hot and alcoholic with some astringency still, but the balance of elements is ultimately convincing for the long term. Another very impressive bottling from this increasingly important producer.

The candied apple and spice-scented 2000 Batard-Montrachet is immensely aromatic. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and ample, this velvety-textured wine is plush, reveals untold quantities of peaches and pears, and possesses a layered, fruit-filled finish. It is an outstanding Batard with fresh, powerful character.

The sort of clean wine that should only get better with age. For now it is tight and firm, offering lemongrass, smoke, apple and toasted oak, and is firm and minerally in the midpalate. Crisp and tough on the finish, but with time it will soften. 200 cases made.

Mature, round, complex - no premox luckily since I thought we were rolling the dice on this one. Has many years left
