Blind Vision: 2015 Burgundy Red & White (Nov 2018)

The 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a ripe, quite candied bouquet laced with orange peel, mandarin and hints of fish oil and linseed. The palate is well balanced with a spicy opening, touches of stem ginger and orange peel laced with marjoram, dovetailing into quite an intense, layered finish that is complex and persistent. It needs another 2 or 3 years to really open up, and hopefully it will show more edginess and delineation by then. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
