Winemaker's Notes

Full-bodied, rich and powerful, Batard-Montrachet has intense aromas and flavors of almonds, apple, white flowers and spices, with incredible length. This wine will develop favorably for 10 to 20 years after the vintage.

This rich wine is ideal paired with equally rich appetizers and elegant main courses such as foie gras, lobster and scallops.

Critical Acclaim

"Jadot's 2011 Batard-Montrachet dazzles with its pure texture, richness and elegance. Tangerine, mint, flowers and honey are some of the many notes that wrap around the palate. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2011 impresses for its striking beauty, nuance and complexity, precisely all the qualities Grand Crus are supposed to deliver. Even with all of its beauty, the 2011 is closed and at times even austere, all of which bodes well for the future. Jadot's Batard emerges from three sites, all in Puligny."
96 Points

"Butter, floral and spice aromas and rich flavors of peach and melon come together with the creamy texture in this intense and opulent white, which has a lingering, complex aftertaste, where a mineral element emerges. Though harmonious and expressive, this will be even better in two to three years."
95 Points

"A ripe and highly expressive nose of acacia blossom, white peach and a pretty array of citrus aromas trimmed in enough wood toast to notice gives way to solidly rich and imposingly full-bodied flavors brimming with dry extract that confers a wonderfully textured, indeed almost chewy mouth feel onto the palate coating yet markedly dry finish. This is extraordinary in its ability to deliver such impressive size and weight while retaining such fine precision. This is very Batard but an elegant version.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"

"Fresh green-tinged yellow. Aromas of mirabelle, clove, menthol and iodine. Highly concentrated, vibrant flavors of yellow and white peach, clove and noble herbs are a bit youthfully aggressive but very intense. This very pure wine is most impressive today on the rising, very long finish. Needs a minimum of five or six years in the cellar and may well ultimately merit an even higher rating. 92(+?) points "
