We tried out Louis Jadot Batard-Montrachet 1996 this past weekend. A very classic Batard-Montrachet at its prime drinking window. Intense, pure and elegant with medium-weight and wonderful length. All guests at the dinner could quickly identify this as a Batard from the 1990s. Once again, Louis Jadot proved itself to be one of the best negociants in Burgundy and delivered this superb wine at ease.
Here’s how Wine Advocate rated it: “Maison Louis Jadot's Batard-Montrachet has a super-ripe, intensely floral nose and a massive, muscular, dense, oily-textured, and full-bodied core of sweet fruit. White peaches, poached pears, juniper berries, and oak nuances can be discerned in this opulent yet focused wine.” (92-95 pts)
