Pale yellow in colour and as always, the nose is very expressive and full with a touch of brioche. On tasting, it is a harmonious, rich wine with some tension. Notes of apricot persist on the finish, mixed with a touch of oak. This is a wine to keep. Vinification Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation Description The Grand Cru vineyard of BÃ¢tard-Montrachet lies between the picturesque villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, home to the world's greatest white wines.
