Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2015, Bachelet-Monnot

Plump, succulent and peachy this Bâtard oozes with rich Chardonnay fruit picked in a deliciously ripe vintage. Excellent full structure and a trifle-like multi-layered texture with vanilla, fruit and a soupçon of sponge finger. For palates who like their wines rich and unctuous this grand cru is for you. Scores 24-26/30 for a Bâtard grand cru. (I've always been more of a Chevalier man myself. And surely it is best to be a knight than a bastard!)
