Extraordinary balance. Very pure and all in a line. Weighty and crystalline, very fresh juice. Lovely pure length. "More structure", says Henri, "one of my favourites in 2012". L&S (Jan 2014)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Reticent aromas of menthol, peach and white flowers. Ripe and vibrant, boasting terrific energy and precision to the stone fruit and floral flavors. Conveys an impression of density without weight, with cut and intensity more akin to a 2010 than a '12. Finishes clean and very long, with penetrating peach and sweet nut flavors. Rating: 93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sep 2014)

Opulence and texture reign supreme in the 2012 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. Exotic, rich and layered to the core, the 2012 wraps around the palate with layers of pure flavor. Butter, spices, apricots, peaches and smoke meld together in a wine that is simply exquisite from the very first taste. The 2012 is unapologetically rich, powerful and voluptuous. What a dazzling wine this is. 2016+ Rating: 95-97 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jan 2014)
