The Remoissenet 2007 Montrachet (of which there are 7 barrels) is even more musky, decadent, and redolent of ripe peach on the nose than the corresponding Batard. It's also denser on the palate, with a scintillating liquid concentration of heady lily and heliotrope perfume. Polished and creamy in texture, this is persistently expansive and soothing rather than dynamic in the manner of the Batard, with hints of vanilla, toast, and caramel adding a faintly confectionary tone. This Montrachet transcends the vintage norm in terms of sheer richness and suggestions of sweetness - the personality of the Batard being more vintage-typical - and one can look for some additional complexity as its baby fat wears off over the next half a dozen or more years.
