Wine Advocate
Domaine Leflaive, 2015 Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

"The Leflaive 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is a superb achievement in the 2015 vintage, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of white peach, fresh bread, pear, preserved citrus, beeswax and crisp yellow orchard fruit. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and authoritative, distinguished by its sense of completeness and control, with terrific depth and amplitude and a long, reserved finish. The Bâtard is one of the high-points of the Leflaive range this year, fully realizing the potential of the vintage."
Domaine Leflaive, 2015 Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

"Pale, bright yellow. Deeper-pitched on the nose than the Bienvenues-Bâtard and a bit reduced, offering aromas of ripe peach, smoke and minerals. Fat on entry, then powerful and unevolved in the middle palate, with strong pineappley acidity keeping the wine from coming off as heavy. Finishes adamantly dry and firm, with a dusty tannic quality and a note of menthol. This wine is evolving very slowly and will need serious cellaring."
