Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 35

(from Puligny fruit) Notably ripe orchard fruit, including peach, pear and apricot is nuanced by notes of white flower and pain grillé that are followed by rich, full and opulent big-bodied and powerful flavors oozing with dry extract that confers an almost chewy character onto the explosive and sappy finish that delivers impressive length.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 140

($245) Pale-medium yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of dried fruits, honey, nutty oak, clove and iodine. Big, rich and sweet but lively, with good mineral firmness and sound acidity buffering the wine's alcoholic power (this is a solid 14%). A bit youthfully aggressive on the finish but very long. Jadot buys both fruit and must for this wine, all from the Puligny side of this grand cru.

The Bâtard-Montrachet vineyard lies just below and parallel to Le Montrachet across the breadth of the slope. The largest of the five Grands Crus, its 11.7ha are divided between Puligny with 6ha, and Chassagne with 5.7ha. Bâtard-Montrachet is generally ranked third in stature among these Grands Crus; its ownership is extremely piecemeal, the largest holding totalling 1.9ha. Maison Louis Jadot carries out a traditional vinification in primarily new oak casks, to underscore and highlight the qualities of this great wine. CS Very rich and dense. Lots of acidity and chew – not much flattery,. Surprisingly. A little low key. Just a bit too tight and introvert.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 180

From the Puligny side of that cru, Jadot's 2006 Batard-Montrachet from both purchased juice and grapes delivers vivid scents of saffron, jasmine, vanilla, musk, brown spices, and ripe peach. Vibrant - virtually electric - on the palate, yet all the while creamy in texture, here is a wine to make one firmly believe in the house proclivity to retain some malic acid. Blind, I might have imagined - at least until further reflection, and recognition of this wine's sheer power - that I was drinking the Marcobrunn Riesling of my dreams. The persistence of fruit and spice here are as formidable as the foregoing features led one to hope.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Full-bodied, opulent and well-muscled, this white enters full speed ahead, turning more restrained by the finish. It's lively enough to stay focused, ushering in a long, spicy finish.

Rich and alomost Sauternes like in its approach and up front fruit, then gives away a long dry chalk and steel finish which lasts at least 30 seconds - truly profund wine
