Tank sample. Another, lithe, toned-up Bâtard. On the one hand broad, but athletic too. Brice de la Morandière notes this is not as imposing a wine as it has been in the past. (MH)

The 2020 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru has turned out very well indeed, offering up aromas of pear, orange oil, white flowers, nutmeg and freshly baked bread, framed by a subtle touch of youthful reduction. Full-bodied, satiny and elegantly muscular, it’s racy and concentrated, with more mid-palate plenitude and chalky structure than the more delicate Bienvenues.
