In contrast to the expressiveness of the Bâtard, here the nose is restrained to the point of being almost mute with only grudging notes of white peach, pear, spice hints and pain grillé in evidence. There is nothing subtle about the huge, indeed even imposing flavors that brim with dry extract that completely coats and stains the palate yet there is ample acid support that keeps everything in perfect balance and harmony. In fact, the balance is so impeccable that I would call this a Zen wine. Overall, the Bâtard is undoubtedly impressive but there is just another dimension present here though note that plenty of patience will be required.
