    The 2013 Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a subtle, mineral nose with Granny Smith apple, cream puffs and flinty scents developing after a couple of minutes in the glass. The palate is rounded and harmonious on the entry with glimpses of white peach and nectarine. The acidity is finely tuned and lends the finish an effortless feel. This Bienvenue is more about the texture than flavors at the moment, with just a touch of viscosity lending it a modicum of richness. Does it rank alongside the immense 2012? Perhaps it falls just short...but not by much. Drink: 2018 - 2035

    From an enviably large tank… From 1 ha+. In 1990 the 30-year-old vines were suffering from fanleaf and they were advised to rip them out. Instead, they quit using herbicides and went biodynamic, and it did the trick! They now have thriving 50+-year-old vines with yields of more than 40 hl/ha. Nose is not obviously a step up from the best premiers crus and the acidity is very marked. Not that exceptionally much more concentrated either. Pretty chewy on the end. Solid rather than breathtaking. Dense but not very expressive. Drink 2020 - 2032

    Finished MLF. This is really expressive. A juicy first impression; Peachy and aromatic. A voluptuous palate, but not heavy at all; generous but airy and really very aromatic on the finish. Lovely long finish entwined with spice and floral notes with a silky texture. So enticing. Score 19.4. How can you fail to be allured by this. From 2019

Producer

Domaine Leflaive

"One of the greatest white wine domaines in Burgundy" remarked Clive Coates. Doamine Leflaive's vineyards in Puligny Montrachet are steeped in history and the current generation can look back to 1717 for the first Leflaive family occupation of the farm buildings that they use today. The domaine was founded by Joseph Leflaive, who came to Burgundy in 1905. Anne-Claude Leflaive, the granddaughter of Joseph was appointed to run the domaine in 1990. A fervent proponent of biodynamic viticulture, Anne-Claude converted the domaine to biodynamics. After her untimely death in 2015, Brice de La Morandiere's, Anne-Claude's nephew and great grand son of Joseph Leflaive took on the mantle. He upholds the terroir-orientated, sustainable winemaking philosophy of the family.

Region

Bâtard Montrachet

Bâtard-Montrachet is a great white Grand Cru in Burgundy's Côte D'or. Its vineyards are located onthe slope beneath Le Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune. Bâtard-Montrachet's soils are heavier than those surrounding it, made up of brown limestone and gravel, which pave the way for rich, nutty, honeyed and heady wines with good structure. They are not as elegant as those from Chevalier-Montrachet and are broader and weightier than wines from Montrachet.
