Henri Boillot Bâtard-Montrachet 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Although obviously still an infant, the 2011 Batard- Montrachet is a wine of tremendous potential. There is gorgeous depth and richness in the fruit, but the minerality and sheer tension of the wine are only apparent on the finish. When I taste the Batard I think of a wine where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The 2011 is harmonious and flat-out gorgeous...94-96" WA 08/12 "Bright yellow. Very ripe aromas of apricot, peach and clove. Fat and very ripe but youthfully backward and not yet showing the complexity of the Bienvenue. Dry, rich and hard to taste today but stands out for its volume, richness and long, smoky aftertaste. Boillot's recently purchased Batard vines are right on the Puligny/Chassagne border...92-95" IWC 09/12
