||Domaine Louis Jadot Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2000
Complex and dramatically fragrant aromas of peach, pear, touch of earth and trace of wood spice introduce flavors that simply explode in the mouth. Very powerful and very masculine in style, this is a take-no-prisoners style of wine that manages to avoid excess and delivers the weight and power with grace. There is undeniably grand cru concentration here with a finish that lasts for minutes. This is every bit as big as the Montrachet and definitely better than its 1999 counterpart. By Allen Meadows.
