harvest note

This was a somewhat turbulent growing season. Lack of soil moisture and a poor fruit set diminished the harvest volumes.

tasting note

Full-bodied, rich and powerful, Bâtard-Montrachet has intense aromas and flavors of almonds, apple, white flowers and spices, with incredible length. This wine will develop favorably for 10 to 20 years after the vintage.

food pairing

This rich wine is ideal paired with equally rich appetizers and elegant main courses such as foie gras, lobster and scallops.
