In 2010 the Batard is towering statuesque and simply impeccable. Today the aromas and flavors are not at all developed rather the wine is really all about textural elegance and finesse and there is plenty of that here. A huge explosive finish rounds things out in style. The Batard is a wine of contrasts. At times it is quite bold and extroverted at others it possesses admirable restraint. Either way it is magnificent. Anticipated maturity: 2020+.

This notches up the ripeness just a touch more yet there are no hints of exoticism to the peach apricot pear and acacia blossom aromas that display a top note of citrus zest.

This notches up the ripeness just a touch more yet there are no hints of exoticism to the peach apricot pear and acacia blossom aromas that display a top note of citrus zest. This is a classic Bâtard in the sense of being big bold and powerful with imposingly-scaled flavors that coat the palate with dry extract before terminating in a massively long and borderline painfully intense finish. To be sure this is a big wine yet it remains light on its feet with no undue sense of being top heavy. Indeed the balance is perfect though note that patience will be required. - Comments: Don't miss!

Bright green-tinged yellow. Captivating aromas of white peach pineapple curry powder medicinal herbs and musky lees. Sappy chewy and dry but completely locked up following the bottling and showing much less personality... Bright green-tinged yellow. Captivating aromas of white peach pineapple curry powder medicinal herbs and musky lees. Sappy chewy and dry but completely locked up following the bottling and showing much less personality than the nose suggests. But this wonderfully tactile fine-grained wine finishes with outstanding tangy persistence. This too will need a decade in the cellar. 94+
