    ($289) Pale yellow. Exotic aromas of peach liqueur, flowers and spicy oak, with a whiff of room freshener. Fat, sweet and full-bodied but lacking in definition. A huge but rather inelegant Batard that some tasters will prize for its sheer fullness and dimension.

    The melted-butter scented 2003 Batard-Montrachet (white) is plush, easygoing, and softly plump. A pleasing medium-bodied effort, its over-ripe white fruit flavors lead to a long, supple finish that reveals a nice touch of freshness. It should be drunk over the next 5-6 years.

    Somewhat surprisingly, this is more open and expressive than the Bienvenues with very ripe white flower, peach and pear notes introducing dense, powerful and explosive flavors that possess buckets of dry extract and plenty of length. This is marginally less refined but bigger and longer. A choice at the moment.

  • "If the blessed slopes of the Cote d'Or are home to the ultimate expression of Chardonnay, then Anne-Claude Leflaive could be regarded as the magician, some might use the word "shaman", who can conjure wine like no other from this propitious terroir." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
