Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues Batard Montrachet 2009
|Region||France, Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet|
Wine EnthusiastWith its concentrated yellow fruits, this is already a powerful wine. It is packed with acidity, toast, peach flavors and minerality, starting out as a gorgeously rich wine from a ripe vintage. Of course, it will age over many years; open in 10 years.
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet is dazzling from start to finish. Silky and seamless at first, the wine impresses for its impeccable balance and tons of class. Chalky, mineral notes appear later, adding length, freshness and verve, while floral notes add the last flourishes of elegance. This is all silk and cashmere, especially on the finish. The Bienvenues seems to hover on the palate, inhabiting in the stratosphere reserved for just a handful of the world's truly great wines. Anticipated maturity: 2017+.
Wine SpectatorA rich white, evoking peach, ripe apple, honey and spice flavors. Well-toned, seamless and multidimensional, with a lingering finish of spices. Drink now through 2018. 114 cases imported.
