The Pernot 2007 Batard-Montrachet features very ripe peach and melon; honeysuckle; Chartreuse-like distilled herbal essences; and marzipan, in a sweetly aromatic display that presages a lush, oily-rich palate of almost gaudy complexity. This finishes with a huge chalk-, herb-, and floral-tinged wave of fruit and nut essences. Two of Pernot’s three parcels of Batard are in Chassagne, and there seldom seems to be any risk of mistaking the differences with his Bienvenues, but in this vintage, what could on other occasions become an overbearing and less elegant personality in Batard retains lift and a modicum of refreshment to go with its abundant ripeness and sheer force.
