Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, October 2020
(96-98 points) Not racked. Glowing pale yellow. There is an enormous weight of fruit on the nose, but beautifully balanced at 13.8% alcohol.

There is an enormous weight of fruit on the nose, but beautifully balanced at 13.8% alcohol. Absolutely sensual in fruit style with a spicy weight behind, a very long finish, picked at the perfect moment, because you have everything you want, but no excess. Sunshine, not heat!

The whole clusters are pressed and fermented on native yeasts in cask (15% new). There is a remarkable purity of fruit here and a subtle nature that takes time to fully develop. The wine has a ripe pear fruit character, plus hints of white flowers and spice. The elegance and finesse continue to echo on the lingering finish.

The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Fine focus here, good energy and precision leading to spicy and persistent finish. Maybe not as classy as other Bâtard that I tasted, but let's see how it will show in bottle. -- Neal Martin

Full-bodied, rich and fleshy, it's a ripe but lively wine with a demonstrative, sun-kissed personality.- WK
