CRITICAL ACCLAIM


John Gilman - "The 2020 Bâtard-Montrachet from Jean-Michel Chartron is another star of the vintage in the making. The beautifully pure and precise nose wafts from the glass in a mix of pear, fresh lemon, white peach, chalky soil tones, raw almond, citrus zest and stylish framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, bright and classy, with a great core of fruit, a proper sense of reserve out of the blocks, beautiful soil undertow, zesty acids and a very, very long, perfectly balanced and nascently complex finish. (Drink between 2030-2070)"


Vinous - "The 2020 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a detailed and quite mineral-driven bouquet, showing a little more personality compared to the Corton-Charlemagne. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and rounded in texture with white peach, almond and traces of crème brûlée towards the ample finish. Excellent. Four barrels produced. Closure: Diam 30 (92-94pts)"


Burghound - "A discreet application of wood is also present here on the ripe aromas of white and yellow orchard fruit, particularly peach, along with a plethora of spice and pretty floral wisps. There is excellent volume to the sappy and delicious larger-scaled flavors that also display good power on the balanced and impressively long finish. This too needs better depth but that is all but assured to develop in time. (91-94pts)"


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Aromas of pear, citrus oil, white flowers and buttery pastry introduce the 2020 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy wine that's powerful and open-knit, with a riper profile than the Chevalier-Montrachet. Always an early picker, Jean-Michel Chartron began his harvest on August 14, chaptalizing some of his cuvées. The result is a set of fine-boned, delicate wines that are certainly nicely balanced, but which lack a bit of concentration and mid-palate plenitude to my palate, and which in some instances display a discreet herbaceous streak. Picking early served Jean-Michel very well in several recent vintages, most notably 2015, but I wonder whether it was the right choice in 2020. (91-93pts)"
