94+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012
Less perfumed on the nose than the Chevalier-Montrachet, dominated today by smoky minerality, petrol and crushed rock along with a hint of clove. Fat, rich and powerful but extremely backward and not yet revealing much personality. Utterly primary Montrachet with a stony, slowly building finish and outstanding length. With its powerful structure and impression of tannins, this will probably have an aging curve more like a red wine than a white. Over the next decade, I'd rather drink the Batard, but this one may ultimately surpass it.
