Domaine Faiveley Batard-Montrachet 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

" A direct, open nose of lemon and peach pastry introduces this broad-shouldered, even fat white. Full of ripe fruit, it expands on the finish with excellent length...93-96" Non-Blind WS 5/12 "Here too there are distinct fermentation aromas along with background notes of warm oak toast. This is slightly bigger and richer compared to the Bienvenues with an impressive abundance of mouth coating dry extract, indeed there is enough to impart a suave mouth feel to the big-bodied flavors that possess real power on the hugely long finish...92-94" BH 6/12 "Bright yellow. Deep aromas of pineapple, exotic herbs, clove oil and smoky oak, complicated by a leesy element. Large-scaled, glyceral and broad; less precise today than the Bienvenue but that's due to this wine's major baby fat. Very ripe peach and apricot flavors are lifted by lemon oil and chewy saline minerality. Finishes very long, with a light dusting of tongue-coating tannins. This wine held up well for days in the recorked bottle. I would not be surprised to see it merit an even higher score with seven or eight years in the cellar...94+" IWC 09/12
