Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru


Côte de Beaune


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety


A legend, a symbol, an element of Burgundian heritage… the Grand Cru Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, like its neighbour Montrachet, embodies all of those. Located in the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet, adjacent to the equally famed Bâtard-Montrachet, this Climat is smaller in surface area.
"Criots" means "chalk" in the local dialect, which refers to the calcareous soil found in this plot. As for the name "Montrachet", it is derived from "Mont Rachaz" (1252) or "Mont Chauve", in reference to the stony, barren nature of the hill. In Old French, "râche" meant "chauve" (bald).


Intense yet subtle nose that combines scents of nuts, dried fruit, white flowers and spices with hints of honey and butter. Full bodied and rich on the palate, this wine is endowed with lovely mineral structure that gives it a great deal of sophistication. Long, pure finish.
