Wine AdvocateThere are just 1½ barrels of the 2013 Batard Montrachet Grand Cru this year. It has an austere bouquet just like the Bâtard-Montrachet, but then opens gloriously with marine scents - shucked oyster shells, cockles and seaweed permeating the citrus fruit. The palate is very well balanced with a keen line acidity, intense citrus peel intermingling with nectarine and orange rind. It fans out wonderfully on the dense, mineral-laden finish - one of the best Montrachet's of the vintage.
