Bâtard-Montrachet – Grand Cru

Description

Joseph Drouhin
Bâtard-Montrachet
Grand Cru

 

 

DESCRIPTION:

    • Site: Bâtard Montrachet straddles Puligny and Chassagne.
    • It lies right below the famous Montrachet vineyard.
    • Bâtard is one of the greatest white wines of the Côte de Beaune.
    • According to the often-told story, the lord of Puligny in the Middle Ages divided his estate between his children: the eldest was the “chevalier” (knight), the daughters were the “pucelles” (young virgins) and the son born out of wedlock was the “bâtard”.

GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay

FOOD PAIRINGS: Only the most refined dishes can do justice to such a wine: foie gras is high on the list, followed by lobster bisque, crayfish, vol-au-vent, sweetbreads, white meat chicken in cream sauce. But whatever you decide to serve, it is sure to be a memorable event !

TASTING NOTES: “Tasting a wine of this stature is always cause for emotion. The golden color has bright reflections. After some aeration, the aromas reveal their rich intensity: grilled bread, almond, honey, exotic wood…What is striking is the structure of the wine, its “monumental” grandeur. There is even a touch of tannin that provides an added dimension. A voluptuous finale, seemingly without end, with precious notes of preserved and ripe fruit.” – Véronique Drouhin-Boss
