a bichot criots batard montrachet 2014
This appellation is located in the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet, the famous Cote 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, Batard is the plot of land that the Lord of Puligny gave to his illegitimate son ("batard" in french). 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.
"The 2014 Criots-Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a delightful, mineral-driven nose with touches of white flower and baking powder infusing the comely citrus fruit. The palate is very well balanced with nicely integrated oak. It does not quite have the tension or length of say, Olivier Lamy's Criots, but there is refinement and tenderness here, with hints of almond and coconut delicately interwoven on the finish. Lovely."
