Our favorite wine from Batard — 2 months ago
Really good had 2014 at batard — 4 months ago
Tasted blind. Nice color and weight. Notes of apricot, lemon, dirt and a little honey. Rich and round in the mouth. The acidity explodes with air time. High pitched. Powered through the afternoon. At peak but well-stored bottles could come across as youthful yet, as this one did. Guessed 1990 Niellon Batard. — 6 months ago
Acidic and salty Muscadet. Straightforward and excellent — 4 months ago
2013 Thierry Pilot Batard-Montrachet. V Day group dinner. JB’s cellar. Amazing. Buttery, nice acid, balanced. — 3 months ago
Bright, fresh, yet concentrated and tropical. Hazelnut, matchstick, apricot, vanilla, bitterness of oak and limezest in the back. Relatively high acidic mouthfeel for a NW chardo, which could be a good thing, but seems slightly artificial and out of place here.
Seems a tad forward and evolved.
“The Batard-Montrachet of Chile?”
Ehhhh, no.., pretty darn good, but not excellent.
