On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and authoritative, distinguished by its sense of completeness and control, with terrific depth and amplitude and a long, reserved finish. The Bâtard is one of the high-points of the Leflaive range this year, fully realizing the potential of the vintage. - William Kelley collapse

Beautifully integrated acidity drives the long finish, where elements of mineral, citrus and spice linger. Best from 2020 through 2032. – BS collapse

The mouth feel of the big-bodied flavors is notably more refined than usual yet the underlying power of a fine Bâtard is certainly present and especially so on the hugely long, firm and built-to-age finish. In a word, impressive. collapse

On the palate the wine is more ample and dense, with incredible power and dimension, and a long, refined finish. A really successful Bâtard this year, which has fully integrated the ripeness of the vintage and avoided the extremes of muscularity which this site is capable of.

Deeper-pitched on the nose than the Bienvenues-Bâtard and a bit reduced, offering aromas of ripe peach, smoke and minerals. Fat on entry, then powerful and unevolved in the middle palate, with strong pineappley acidity keeping the wine from coming off as heavy. Finishes adamantly dry and firm, with a dusty tannic quality and a note of menthol. This wine is evolving very slowly and will need serious cellaring. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse
