The 2014 Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru is much more convincing and energetic on the nose compared to the Bienvenue with upfront, flinty scents storming from the glass. The palate has a touch of viscosity on the entry, predicating a powerful and broad shouldered Bâtard that is determined to make an impression, which it does. It is very well balanced, very intense and just a lovely white grand cru Burgundy. 93-95 Neil Martin Drink 2018 to 2035.
The whites from Jadot this year are simply stunning.
Louis Jadot, Domaine and Negocient rolled into one. 150 years old in 2009. One of the largest owners of Grand and Premier Cru plots in Burgundy and one of the most reliable sources of wine from the area. Since 1996 they have made their own barrels controlling the whole process of wine making apart from the weather!
