Domaine Paul Pernot "Batard-Montrachet" Grand Cru 2015
95 Points Vinous
Pale, green-tinged yellow. Vibrant aromas of lemon and lime peel, white peach and crushed herbs lifted by white flowers; very precise for a young Batard, especially from such a warm year. Wonderfully suave and brisk in the mouth, conveying a lacy texture to its citrus and stone fruit, licorice and fresh herb flavors. The resounding finish is rich, salty and very long. A wonderfully complex young Batard with outstanding potential. It's often hard to choose between Pernot's two grand crus in the early going, but not this year.
