Domaine Faiveley Batard-Montrachet 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pale yellow. Less expressive on the nose than the Bienvenue, hinting at clove, nuts and iodine. Then rich but dry in the mouth, and much less showy than the Bienvenue, conveying a clenched, solid, almost salty impression. Very tactile, palate-staining wine with finishing flavors of crushed rock and iodine. These vines are located just under the Montrachet of Marquis de Laguiche, notes Hervet. A bruiser. Hervet notes that the Bienvenue parcel is actually lower on the slope than the Batard but that the wine is higher-pitched and finer, with less volume. Or, as he put it, "in Burgundy, the rule is that there is no rule."...92-95" IWC 09/10
