Burghound | Rating: 91Classic '96 in style and character with intense, pure, airy and superbly elegant, still entirely primary white fruit aromas followed by medium weight, delineated and cut flavors that offer wonderful length and first class transparency. What this is not is especially dense but the purity, vibrancy and sheer length are most impressive.Author: Allen Meadows
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Deep, brooding aromas of honey, tobacco, game; shows a sweet, slightly candied fruit quality. Powerful yet already expressive, with lovely sweetness and superb flavor intensity. Lovely sugar/acid balance gives this a harmoniousness from the outset. A big boy, with its substantial alcohol under control. Superb length.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 1998
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95Maison Louis Jadot's Batard-Montrachet has a super-ripe, intensely floral nose and a massive, muscular, dense, oily-textured, and full-bodied core of sweet fruit. White peaches, poached pears, juniper berries, and oak nuances can be discerned in this opulent yet focused wine.Author: Pierre Rovani
Wine Spectator | Rating: 88Round, ripe and fairly opulent, this is a silky-as-they-come sort of wine. Lacks a bit of intensity and finesse, showing plenty of butter, ripe pear, lime and earth flavors. Full-bodied, with a malic-herbal tone on the finish.Author: Per-Henrik Mansson
