Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Following a super-ripe, concentrated nose of tropical fruits, the Batard-Montrachet serves up layers of spice-laden tropical fruit. With great staying power, this intense, long, full-bodied wine is a true Grand Cru. Drink it between 2000-2010. According to Lardiere, the Batard had 13.7% natural sugar, eclipsing the Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles's 13.5%. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. Ratings with a range of scores in parentheses indicate the wine was tasted from cask, not bottle.Author: Pierre Rovani
