Domaine Leflaive, Bâtard - Montrachet, 2009

1 x 0.750L
into neck
96 / 100 Robert Parker
The 2009 Batard-Montrachet positively explodes from the glass. Round, sweet and expressive, the wine saturates the palate with masses of fruit in a bold, powerful style that is utterly irresistible. The finish is intense and resonant in all directions. Remy notes that the Batard is the only 2009 above 14% in alcohol. Anticipated maturity: 2017+.

92 / 100 Wine Spectator
A sleek, focused white, showing butter, honey, peach and baked apple flavors. There's a textural component that suggests light tannins, with a long honey finish. Best from 2013 through 2021.
18 / 20 Jancis Robinson
Flowery nose. Very dense. Quite charming on the nose already. Very supple with the weight almost overpowering the very considerable acidity. Crystalline on the palate with a hint even of barley sugar. Expansive, rich and round and a hint of lime. Lip smacking and deceptively open but it would be a shame to drink this too young. Very long.
95 / 100 Allen Meadow
An expressive and actually quite elegant nose features lemon rind, spiced pear, white peach and plenty of dried floral influences. The supple, round and imposingly scaled big-bodied flavors are impressively concentrated and while quite powerful, they are also quite seductively textured before culminating in an explosive yet impeccably well-balanced finish. As is usually the case, this is a big wine but it retains a certain refinement that, in the same vein as the Bienvenues, is not exactly expected in a bold and exceptionally rich vintage like 2009.
