Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru
Côte de Beaune
AOC Grand cru
This appellation is located in the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet, the famous Côte de Beaune village. “Criots" means “chalk” in the old local dialect, which refers of course to the soil in this plot. According to the story passed down through history, Bâtard is the plot of land that the Lord of Puligny gave to his illegitimate son. The white wines produced in this area are internationally renowned and acknowledged as being the best Chardonnays in the world.
Intense yet delicate, the nose develops complex and elegant aromas underpinned by discrete oak and predominantly white floral notes. Full-bodied on the palate with great finesse and very pure mineral structure. This wine boasts remarkable length.
Savour this Grand Cru with delicate fine fish or shellfish in rich sauce, smoked salmon or foie gras.
