Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, December 2015,
    Score: 91-93

    The 2014 Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru was somewhat reticent on the nose, less flattering than its counterpart that I tasted chez Domaine Leflaive earlier that same day. The palate is taut and crisp, tightly coiled, quite spicy like the Combettes with a dash of white pepper towards the long finish. It is a reserved Bienvenue but it will repay cellaring. Just two barrels produced. Drink 2018-2035

    (from a .19 ha parcel; these are the oldest vines of the Domaine planted in 1938). An elegant, pure and ultra-fresh nose offers up notes of honeysuckle, white peach, tea and citrus zest. There is an even more refined mouth feel to the utterly delicious and highly seductive medium weight flavors that somewhat surprisingly are even more precise, all wrapped in a citrusy, impressively persistent and youthfully austere finale. This is quite firmly structured and should amply reward extended cellaring. Drink 2024+

    This has gorgeous fruit; such a peachy fruit on the nose and flowers…perfumed on the palate too; Seductive, flowing; rounded, open, fragrant with a lacy intensity. Lovely long pure finish. It is delicate and intense. Drink from 2020
