The appellation Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet was created in 1937, the name "Criots” coming from Chalkstone of the vineyard. This vineyard of 1.57 hectares is one of the smallest appellations in France, producing only a small quantity of its rare wine every year. At an altitude of around 240 m, a little lower than its Grands Crus neighbors Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet, it is the only one of the 4 Grands Crus in the South of Côte de Beaune that is situated entirely in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet.
Made exclusively from Chardonnay, this vineyard benefits from an easterly exposure which guarantees maximum ripeness of the grapes. The soil is made of gravel and is relatively well drained. It is based on the Bathonian limestone with outcrops of mixed clays.
The Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2007 is a lovely golden yellow color and it has strong aromas of grilled hazelnuts and brioche. In the mouth, it has an exceptional fullness with a finish marked by exotic fruits, in particular, mango and lemon confit. It has a wonderful length in the mouth.
