The Grand Cru vineyard of Bâtard-Montrachet lies between the picturesque villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, home to the world's greatest white wines. Only a small country lane separates this 11.86 hectare vineyard from the great Montrachet itself. Its gentle easterly-facing slope is made up of a deep, rich, gravelly soil which has a limestone base, world renowned for the production of high quality Chardonnay.
The soil in the vineyards is of gravel with a limestone base.
The average age of the vines are 40 years with an average yield of 35 hl/ha.
Harvested by hand.
Typical of this Grand Cru, this wine has a magnificent light golden robe.
On the nose notes of toasted bread and white flowers, such as honeysuckle and camomile come to the fore.
On the palate, this is a very fatty ample wine with flavours of honeycomb, leaving a slightly woody finish.
Best laid down for a good three years. Definitely worth waiting for!
