About

90-92

"This too is sufficiently reduced to render an evaluation of the nose impossible. There is more volume still to the concentrated, thick and opulent flavors that are borderline massive, all wrapped in a sappy and overtly powerful finish. As the description suggests this is a big wine but I prefer the relatively more elegant presentation of the Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. Moreover I would not be inclined to age this for more than a few years as it risks becoming heavy."

92 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Pale, bright yellow. Yellow fruits and spices on the nose. A step up in ripeness, richness and sweetness from the more laidback Bienvenues-Bâtard, this mouthfilling grand cru captures the sheer volume of the vintage. Plush, smooth orchard and stone fruit flavors display a bit of alcoholic warmth but are given definition by underlying minerality. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and considerable length. This Bâtard will need a few years to burn off some of its baby fat."
