Things go up a notch or two with the 2010 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet which appears to hover on the palate with the grace of a ballerina. The Bienvenues is all about weightless elegance and implied structure but it is all there in the glass. At times a bit intellectual the Bienvenues is nevertheless immensely appealing. Layers of soft perfumed fruit flow effortlessly to the nuanced feminine finish. A hint of floral honey and almonds lingers on the palate. I can't wait to see how this ages. Anticipated maturity: 2020+.

Bright yellow. Subdued aromas of white peach pineapple and white flowers lifted by spicy clove oil. At once elegant and penetrating showing superb depth and building energy to its bracing citrus-dominated flavors. ... Bright yellow. Subdued aromas of white peach pineapple and white flowers lifted by spicy clove oil. At once elegant and penetrating showing superb depth and building energy to its bracing citrus-dominated flavors. Nothing exotic about this beauty. Really leaves the taste buds vibrating. A great showing for this pure beautifully balanced baby: I'd cellar it for a decade. 95+

Here the nose is actually quite similar to that of the Pucelles save for being ever-so-slightly riper and displaying more overt peach influence. There is the same exquisite purity to the strikingly intense and beautifully well-detailed flavors that ooze both a fine minerality and plenty of dry extract that imparts a wonderfully seductive texture to the explosive yet refined finish. Like the Pucelles this is a combination of focused power and finesse. - Comments: Don't miss!

A full tank of 23 hl! Very heady and majestically dense. Lovely green fruits and raciness. What more could anyone want of a white burgundy? Just so much vitality and layers and persistence. Really great! So persistent. ... A full tank of 23 hl! Very heady and majestically dense. Lovely green fruits and raciness. What more could anyone want of a white burgundy?
