    Batard Montrachet 2005
    Domaine Leflaive
    owc
    Bottle (6)
    "Big and bold and extremely honeyed - massive in fact. Some oak still in evidence but still racy underneath. Absolutely pure and bursting with energy. Very, very rich yet racy too. Still a fair amount of baby astringency underneath - set for greatness! Wonderful lime syrpup sort of enegery - very very long and very sunny somehow, without the puppy fat that can plague some Bâtards." (19pts JR, Aug 2007)

    "Interestingly, this is riper than the Bienvenues yet less expressive with a pretty mélange of very fresh orchard fruit and acacia blossom aromas that introduce broad-shouldered flavors of serious power and weight that are carrying ample levels of dry extract that really coat the palate on the explosive and hugely long finish. This can't match the BBM for sheer elegance but there is more material here and more overall completeness too. As with the Bienvenues, the '05 version of the Bâtard is the best example since the 1985. A great effort." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #31, July 2008)
