2018 Domaine Pierre Morey Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru
Distinguished by its excellent situation, just under Montrachet, its soil is beautiful, not too deep, and rich ; the subsoil has a good drainage. This is a wine of contrasts : powerful, rich, with a good length, it becomes more refined very slowly.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate – William Kelley 94-96 pts
Aromas of green pear, almond paste, mandarin oil, honeyed yellow orchard fruit and pastry cream introduce the 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, deep and muscular wine that’s layered and concentrated, with lovely mid-palate amplitude and serious chalky structuring extract. This is a long and powerful Bâtard that will require bottle age to fulfill all its potential. Readers should note that this wine is identical with the Bâtard-Montrachet released under the (Pierre Morey) and Morey-Blanc label.
Decanter – Tim Atkin 2019-10 95 pts
“The Morey’s farm this exceptional 0.5 ha parcel under a metayage (rental and part payment in wine) agreement, so it’s bottled under the domaine’s label (PS from Morey, and also Morey-Blanc label becasue we purchase the owner part). This comes from the higher part of the grand cru, close to Montrachet, and it’s a comparatively racy, focused, aromatic expression of the terroir with lime and tangerine flavours, wonderful texture and a dusting of ktichen spices.”
