Tasting Notes

Peachy, floral and honeyed with hints of fresh grass and mint. Generous, rich and expressive yet focussed and precise. Powerful, concentrated and structured with driving acidity and a firm mineral backbone. This is a masterful balancing act and an extremely special wine.

Reviews & Scores

OK, we know £60 a pop is serious white wine pricing, but Batàr is very serious, biodynamically-produced white wine. The name is a playful homage to Bâtard-Montrachet for this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, fermented and aged in French barriques, 30% of which are new. It has a haunting, beautiful fragrance, all the floral charm and subtle oatmeal richness, refined and agile mineral balance and such a flood of peachy fruit on the palate. Immensely fresh, but with almond, subtle honey, and terrific balancing acidity. Delicious, complex and understated, this is indeed a great white wine.

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

This Chardonnay is pale yellow in colour with the shades of gold. The nose is intense, with ripe and elegant aromas, and offers tropical fruit and citrus aromas. This elegant wine boasts rich aromas of honey and peaches, along with a distinctive salty-savory note, which is a proper expression of our vineyards and terroir. The palate is fresh and lively...
