Drank 2 bottles of this. First was very precise and energetic. Surprisingly fresh for an ‘05, not to memtion from Batard. 2nd bottle was more advanced but not overly so. Was more where I’d expect this wine to be. Deeper color and richness. Some @ dinner preferred this I’m not one of those folks but both were very nice. 94 and 92 points respectively. 2005 vintage.

Very young. Great acidity but off balance and a little green. Much prefer 2009 Bâtard.

Slightly pushed cork but otherwise good looking bottle with high fill, and solid and appropriate cork. Popped and poured into a decanter. Dark gold. Not giving much in the way of a nose. Apricot, lemon, popcorn. Reasonable structured mouth feel, silky, warm. This bottle may have had some mistreatment at some point in its life. Even with more air over a few hours this didn't evolve into what it should be.

Med gold. Heavy in the glass. Nice nose w lemon curd, honey citrus, and river rock. Very rich in the mouth. Ripe fruit and great structure. Tasty finish.

A lot of 2009 recently. I never bough them, and while they are interesting to try I don't regret my choice. Too ripe and too little acid.
