    ($190) Deep but cool aromas of lime ice, white flowers, clove oil and wet stone. Broader, sweeter and denser than the Chevalier; really expands in the mouth. In contrast to the atypically subtle 2002, this is classic big-boned Batard. Finishes very long and broad, with strong minerality and a whiplash of flavor. Niellon traditionally shows this wine after his Chevalier as it's from very old, degenerating vines (|like the Batard of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti and Chateau de la Maltroye,| he notes), planted in 1927. Also tasted: Chassagne-Montrachet*.

    Niellon's 2001 Batard-Montrachet boasts an expressive nose of flowers, pears, and hints of vanilla. Medium-bodied, it broadens on the palate, revealing a thick, silky-textured core of spicy minerals and poached pears whose effects linger in its exceptional finish.. This expansive, powerful wine retains a classy, refined personality even though it wows the taster with its depth and richness. This wine is, unquestionably, one of the finest white Burgundies produced in 2001. Bravo!

    Rich, luxuriant aromas of honeysuckle and discreet wood spice are followed by big, intense, powerful, driving yet elegant, mouth coating flavors that are impressively concentrated, impressively complex and curiously for such a robust wine, there is a silky palate impression. If this has anything on the 2001 Chevalier though, at least at the moment, it is just sheer length as this is one of the longest wines I tasted on the entire trip. In short, this is a great Bƒtard and it may one day equal the incredible Chevalier.
