Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru – 2009 – 95 points –
95 points

“This beauty displays the hallmark Bienvenues nose of honeysuckle, citrus and pear that is very much in keeping with the rich, intense and palate etching flavors that exude a fine minerality on the refined, pure and harmonious finish that is very Zen-like. The Leflaive BBM can, in some vintages, more resemble a Bâtard and in others, the Pucelles. In 2009, it’s neither as it doesn’t have the weight and power of its grand cru sibling but there’s definitely more depth and weight than in the Pucelles. But what impresses me more is just how refined this is even in the context of a vintage that is not naturally given to much refinement. A knockout and for the first time in recent memory, this is every bit as good as the Bâtard in 2009.”
