The 2015 Batard is an absolute blockbuster that beautifully combines texture, purity of fruit and terroir. The bouquet is respendent with aromas of lemon citrus, apple, pear, white flowers and mandarin orange and subtle hints of oak. There is outstanding volume to the concentrated, powerful and palate coating flavors that are supported by a firm spine on the tension-filled and massively persistent finish. This is a big yet well-balanced Bâtard that should age for a very long time yet be approachable after only 5-ish years or so, or after an hour of decanting.
