“The 2012 Batard Montrachet has a terse, laconic nose that is nevertheless well defined with citrus peel and pleasant fume scents. The palate is surprisingly spicy on the entry, very saline in the mouth with a pleasant build in the mouth towards a spicy, almost fiery finish.”

Imporrter Note:

This is one of the finest white Burgundy estates, where the wine-making involves minimal interventions. It is run by Jean-Marc Blain and his wife Claudine, the daughter of Jacques Gagnard-Delagrange. The family owns some of the village’s greatest hillsides. New oak barrels are never used to excess, being subtly spread amongst the different cuvées, so that spicy oakiness is never perceptible here. Blain is also prudent with stirring-up of the lees (known as bâtonnage) which, if used to excess, may result in heavy wines which taste mealy. Here, on the contrary, the finished wines have great purity of fruit, with balanced acidity and long, clean flavours which clearly evoke the wines’ precise origins.
