Tasting Notes

♥ DON'T MISS - BURGHOUND | From purchased fruit, the Drouhin 2007 Batard-Montrachet leads with musky, animal notes and high-toned citrus oil highly reminiscent of the 2006 rendition. Lushly-fruited, oily-textured, and expansive, its persistent salinity and piquancy of toasted nuts help restrain and set-off its generosity of citrus and pit fruits and a savory segue between mineral and carnal notes lends intrigue to a long finish. Predictably for its site, this lacks the refinement or uncanny lift and complexity of the corresponding Meursault Perrieres, but it is far more interesting than many a Batard. I imagine it being best drunk over the next 5-7 years, and given its showing today, there is no need to wait. David Schildknecht - Wine Advocate
