DOMAINE LEFLAIVE BIENVENUES-BÂTARD-MONTRACHET PULIGNY-MONTRACHET BURGUNDY 2017

Wine Advocate

93-95+ Points

Like the Pucelles, the 2017 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is quite tensile and reserved, unfurling in the glass with aromas of green orchard fruit, iodine, orange rind and creamy new wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, textural and fleshy, but taut—even firm—at the core, with good concentration, tangy acid and a bright, chalky finish. Like all these releases, I'm looking forward to seeing it from bottle.  William Kelley 4th Jan 2019

Vinous

92-95+ Points

Ripe yellow stone fruits and hazelnut on the nose. Dense, sappy and quite dry, with its rather bracing acidity (at the high end for these '17s) giving the saline middle palate outstanding precision. This very tight wine is not yet displaying grand cru weight or palate presence but it spreads out and vibrates on the very long, pure, slowly building back end. This was the first '17 to finish both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, which may explain its peacock's tail of a finish. Stephen Tanzer June 2018
