Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru


Côte de Beaune


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety


A legend, a symbol, a part of Burgundy's heritage… our Grand Cru Bâtard-Montrachet, just like its neighbour Le Montrachet, embodies all of those qualities.
More or less divided equally between the communes of Chassagne and Puligny, it is said that the Lord of Puligny gave this plot to his illegitimate son, which is why it is called "Bâtard" (bastard). As for the name Montrachet, it is derived from "Mont Rachaz" (1252) or "Mont Chauve", in reference to the stony, barren aspect of the hill (in old French, "râche" meant "bald" ("chauve").


Boasting incredible complexity even in its youth, this wine's first nose is redolent of dried fruit, flowers and spices, which opening up to honey notes. Powerful, unctuous and full bodied on the palate, this wine's dense structure lends it perfect balance. The long, scrumptious finish reveals toasted and jammy notes. This is a truly classy wine.
