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.
