(BH92-95 points) There is enough reduction present to render the nose difficult to assess. There is a highly seductive mouth feel to the broad-shouldered and well-concentrated flavors that coat the mouth with an abundance of dry extract on the powerful, explosive, gorgeously complex and impressively long finish where a touch of wood surfaces. This is potentially outstanding as it has everything it needs to develop over the next 10 years.

The 2011 Batard Montrachet Grand Cru has a refined bouquet, quite powerful with intense citrus and green apple aromas, a pleasant flintiness coming through with aeration although I felt there is a veneer of new oak to be completely assimilated. The palate is fresh and lively on the entry with a lovely salinity from start to the slightly reduced finish. There is a ton of potential here, a great wine from Benjamin Leroux, although I would be inclined to give it another couple of years in bottle. Tasted September 2016. - Neal Martin
