The Creôts Bâtard Montrachet is one of the 7 Grands Crus Blancs de Bourgogne and is one of the 5 great vintages of the Montrachet family.

Located south of the Beaune coast in Chassagne-Montrachet, the appellation represents only 1.50 hectares, the smallest of the 5 Grands Crus of Montrachet. The Roger Belland estate owns almost a third of the appellation.

The estate vinifies its wines with great sweetness and delicacy. The Criots Batard Montrachet Grand Cru is, for example, aged for 8 months in French oak barrels, 90% new.

Only the greatest wines can provoke this type of intense emotions when they open. Here, the pleasure begins with the visual: the dress will be gold with emerald highlights, the bouquet will offer an extremely complex bouquet that will go from notes of hot pastries, dried fruit, to spices through honey.

Very harmonious wine with perfect balance, which will offer incredible power, structure, roundness and persistence.

 

Wine serving temperature: 12 to 14 degrees

Wine Characteristics

White: subtle differences in the wines signal variations in Climat but they also share many common traits. Their colour is gold flecked with emerald, darkening towards yellow with age. Their bouquet evokes butter and warm croissants, bracken, dried fruit, spices and honey. Body and bouquet are not separately distinguishable, so closely blended are structure and harmony into a single perfect whole. Unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, enveloped and profound, these wines combine every virtue in a firmly-established personality.

Wine Steward’s Tip

The power and aromatic persistence of these lofty wines demands aristocratic and sophisticated dishes with complex textures: foie gras, of course, and caviar. Lobster, crawfish, and large wild prawns, with their powerful flavours and firm textures, pay well-deserved homage to the wine and match its opulence. Firm-fleshed white fish such as monkfish would be equally at home in their company. And let us not forget well-bred and well-fattened free-range poultry whose delicate flesh, with the addition of a cream-and-mushroom sauce, will be lapped up in the unctuous and noble texture of this wine. Even a simple piece of veal, fried or in sauce, would be raised to heavenly heights by the Montrachet’s long and subtle acidity.
Serving temperature: 12 to 14°C.
 

Situation

The Montrachet family consists of five Grands Crus grown in the two villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. These two share the Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet appellations. Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet belong to Puligny-Montrachet, Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet belongs to Chassagne-Montrachet. These Grands Crus are the most southerly of the Côte de Beaune, and lie between Meursault in the North and Santenay in the South.
Their origins go back to the Middle Ages - the work of the Cistercian abbey of Maizières and the Lords of Chagny. The wines of Montrachet (pronounced Mon-rachay) came fully into their own in the 17th century.
There is no argument: this is the finest expression of the Chardonnay grape anywhere on earth ! The appellations Grands Crus date from 31 July, 1937.
 

Terroirs


The underlying rocks date from the Jurassic, 175 million years BC. Exposures lie to the East and the South. Altitudes: 265-290 metres (Chevalier) ; 250-270 metres (Montrachet) ; 240-250 metres (Bâtard, Bienvenues, Criots). In the
Climat of Montrachet, the soils are thinnish and lie on hard limestone traversed by a band of reddish marl. In Chevalier, the soils are thin and stony rendzinas derived from marls and marly-limestones. In the Bâtard Climat soils are brown limestone which are deeper and, at the foot of the slope, more clayey.
