Leflaive, Domaine - Batard Montrachet 1999
Tasting Notes and Scores
(from 3 different parcels, two on the Chassagne side and the third in the Puligny sector, almost on the border between the two communes). An expressive and maturing nose features powerful aromas of white flowers and traces of lime and peach (as well as moderate reduction that eventually dissipates with air) that leads to rich and impressively layered flavors of good density yet uncommon elegance and superb length. This is quite textured on the palate with more minerality and detail than one usually encounters in a typical BÃ¢tard. This is approable now though will certainly hold for years to come though I'm not sure that it will necessarily improve further. Tasted multiple times with mostly consistent notes.
