By Wine Advocate in 2009
Musky, decadently floral, nose-wrinkling spice, and ripe pit-fruited notes rise from the glass of Pernot’s 2007 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet. Almond paste, lightly toasted hazelnut, poached peach, candied orange rind, and brown spices inform a rich palate, whose impressive persistence preserves the senses of refreshment, energy, and lift characteristic of the best wines of this vintage. Nor are myriad mineral notes missing here, either. It will be fascinating to compare this wine’s evolution with that of the next-door Les Pucelles over the coming decade.
