A ripe style, bordering on tropical fruit flavors, this white exhibits flashes of pineapple and coconut that grace notes of lime and white flowers. Intense and balanced, with a tactile feel on the long finish.
An expressive and attractively fresh nose freely offers up intricately layered aromas of spiced apple, poached pear, citrus confit and a whiff of exotic jasmine tea. The big-bodied, intense and imposingly powerful flavors drench the palate in dry extract that also buffers the firm acid spine shaping the compact, powerful and impeccably well-balanced finish.
Pure, airy and wafting aromas of white flowers, citrus rind include both lemon and tangerine plus wisps of pear, passion fruit and pretty spice nuances trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. Somewhat surprisingly, the mouthfeel of the solidly constituted flavors is relatively fine with good power that slowly builds from the mid-palate to the sleekly muscular finish. This understated and lovely effort is very promising.
The 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot) is promising, bursting with aromas of citrus zest, buttered orchard fruit, toasted bread, fresh mint and white flowers. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it’s layered and textural, with tangy acids and a saline finish.
