Domaine Leflaive, Bienvenue Batard Montrachet Grand Cru 2015 75 cl
The 2015 Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a very pretty bouquet, almost like a more complex and vigorous version of the 2015 Puligny Clavoillon - hints of acacia honey, honeysuckle, cold limestone and flint. The aromas appear to gain vigor in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with good weight in the mouth. Perhaps not quite as tensile as the 2014, nevertheless it is nicely focused and offers good weight on the finish. I would just like to see more terroir expression on the finish here, though there is fine salinity. It does not quite seem to deliver the same focus as the Les Pucelles that I tasted directly before it, so they will be two interesting wines to compare once in bottle.
Robert Parker 91-93 point.
