Citrus blossom hazelnut anise lemon custard apricot smoke and mineral flavors mingle with the firm structure and creamy texture. Harmonious and balanced with lingering notes of vanilla and mineral salt. A lot of finesse for the appellation. Best from 2009 through 2025. 260 cases imported. –BS

Despite the presence of moderate reduction, the nose offers an elegant mix of wood spice, fresh and wonderfully nuanced high-toned white flower aromas and just a touch of exotic fruit that precedes sweet, rich and notably powerful flavors that possess exceptionally good dry extract levels which confer a textured, almost chewy mouth feel on the sleekly muscled and explosive finish. This is an impressive effort that is relatively racy by the usual standards found in Bâtard and one that should age for years.

Rich and pure but youthfully austere and a bit disjointed today, even a bit rustic in the early going. But this is impressively large-scaled and chewy for the vintage. Needs a good five or six years to incorporate its rather strong acidity (actually, 4.6 grams per liter-at the high end for this cellar in this vintage).
