With a wine of this stature, a few years are definitely needed before a bottle should be opened. It is only then that all the aromas of toasted bread, almonds, honey, exotic wood can really be appreciated. On the palate, Bâtard-Montrachet always strikes us with its monumental structure. Interestingly, there is even a touch of tannin that provides an added dimension. The aftertaste is simply glorious : powerful, voluptuous and seemingly unending.
Only the most refined dishes can do justice to such a wine : foie gras is high on the list, followed by lobster bisque, crayfish, vol-au-vent, sweetbread, white meat chicken in cream sauce. But whatever you decide to serve, it is sure to be a memorable event !
