Burghound | Rating: 92A huge and enveloping nose of ripe orchard fruit and white flower aromas that are still largely primary in character leads to classic Bƒtard-like flavors as they're exceptionally powerful and extremely rich and long. This is impressive juice and while not the most elegant '89, this is really quite stylish and still on the way up.Author: Allen Meadows
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96Among Louis Latour's grands crus, the 1989 Batard-Montrachet is absolutely spectacular, a near perfect example of just how riveting Batard-Montrachet can be. Even though it is much more developed than the 1989 Corton-Charlemagne or 1989 Montrachet, it should last as long as either of them. The bouquet is bursting with flavors of oranges, smoky oak, toast, and butterscotch. In the mouth there is enormous richness, gobs of glycerin and extraction of flavor, and surprisingly high acidity in view of the wine's massiveness and extract levels. Drink this spectacular Batard-Montrachet over the next 10-15 years. This is an outstanding white burgundy by any standard of measurement. Don't miss it!Author: Robert Parker
