Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru — 2019

Decanter
96 Points

Balance is always the hallmark of the Bâtard from Leflaive as the fresh minerality of the Puligny side of the vineyard plays against the luxurious and almost tropical notes of the south-facing Chassagne side. Here the wine is a bit restrained on the nose, but the substance and structure is immediately apparent. The 2019 vintage will need time to reveal its full potential, but the intrinsic rich, voluptuous character is evident from the start. Immense length and potential.

Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru — 2019

Decanter
96 Points

The Bienvenues has retained a rewarding freshness, with a forward fruit that has both tropical and citrus elements and plenty of floral notes. The texture is lively but supple; there is plenty of fresh acidity that brings a pleasant energy to the wine. This should age for decades to come.

Delightful aromas of green apple and chamomile, yet there is a gentle touch of honey as well. Superbly balanced, crisp and clean, with appreciable richness but no heaviness.

Highlights the lemon peel and pomelo fruit of great purity with delightful salty, mineral notes. The wine is crisp and fine on the palate.

Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes – 2017

Vinous

Plenty of fruit concentration. The palate is slightly tropical on the entry, but very pure, with a fine bead of acidity. Fresh and quite saline, there is a lot of extract and intensity. Pushing Grand Cru in quality.

Flint and green apple notes gradually unfurl. There is a long, spicy aftertaste and impressive precision.

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru – 2017

A clean, precise bouquet, fresh, taut and understated. The well-balanced palate delivers real power, offering flavors of candied orange peel and spices and a fine saline undercurrent. Harmonious, elegant yet intense, this should age with style and panache.

This is even more aromatically elegant with its intensely floral-suffused aromas that include acacia, lavender and rose petal along with an array of white fleshed fruit, spice and subtle wood influence. This cool, intense and precise large-scaled flavors brim with both sappy dry extract and minerality, all wrapped in a tightly coiled, linear and remarkably persistent finish. This is incredibly promising and very clearly built-to-age.

An exuberantly floral-suffused nose speaks of citrus, spice, passion fruit, exotic Asian-style tea and a tough of anise. The bigger and richer broad-shouldered flavors remain focused and almost as refined with superb depth and persistence on the impeccably well-balanced finale. This is also very classy and a wine that should age gracefully for several decades. This is also a bonafide stunner of a wine.

Here the equally beautiful nose is quite similar to that of the Pucelles save for being much more restrained. Cool, pure and almost painfully intense flavors possess the same sleek, sophisticated and graceful texture as well as even better persistence on the youthfully austere, compact and wonderfully complex finale. This is a stunner of a Bienvenues.

Prominent notes of honeysuckle and passion fruit are laced with a variety of space and citrus elements. There is good richness and an abundance of dry extract to the strikingly refined flavors that possesses a gorgeous mouthfeel which delivers flat out superb length on the balanced finale. This is very classy juice that should basically age for as long as anyone would reasonably like.

Moderate reduction is sufficient to mask the underlying fruit today. More interesting are the wonderfully fine and delicate yet punchy flavors that possess a highly sophisticated mouthfeel before culminating in a sappy saline and strikingly persistent finish. I very much like the balance and this beauty may well prove to be a great Combettes in time.

Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières — 2019

Here the beautifully layered nose flirts with the exotic in the form of white and yellow peach, dried apricot, jasmine tea and a similar array of spice wisps. The ripe yet retrained and more obviously mineral-driven flavors possess excellent depth and persistence on the very lemon-tinged finale. This too is noticeably firmer and should reward a decade plus of keeping.

An overtly floral suffused nose displays notes of pear compote, citrus confit and subtle spice wisps. There is excellent vibrancy to the attractively textured medium weight flavors that also exude a refreshing salinity on the citrusy, dry and notably more complex finish that is perceptibly firmer. This should age well.

A cool, pure and airy nose is comprised by notes of apple, citrus and white peach. There is once again fine punch and delineation to the middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the linear, youthfully austere and bone-dry finale.

Mild reduction blurs the nuance of what appears to be ripe white orchard aromas. There is both excellent volume and salinity to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a bracingly dry, complex and well-balanced finale.

Ripe and very fresh aromas are comprised by notes of poached pear, green apple citrus ring and a hint of mineral reduction. There is fine richness and solid concentration to the middle weight flavors that possesses a caressing mouthfeel and exhibit fine length on the clean, dry and balanced finale.

Firm reduction dominates the underlying fruit a present. Otherwise, there is fine intensity to the delineated and concentrated medium weight flavors that flash good minerality on the nicely complex and persistent finale. This possesses enough mid-palate fat to be accessible young but should have no trouble aging gracefully.

Elegant and very pretty aromas of petrol, acacia blossom and various white orchard fruit give way to sleek and relatively sophisticated flavors that are once again markedly saline, which only contributes further to the refreshing and persistent finish. This is lovely and understated.

Super-fresh aromas include those of green apple, spice and a plethora of citrus nuances. The medium weight flavors are not quite as dense but they're notably finer and with better precision on the mineral-driven, clean and agreeably dry finale that is just a bit firmer.
