Albert Bichot Criots Batard Montrachet Grand Cru
Price: $480.72 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
There is a mildly exotic character present on the petrol-inflected dried yellow orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The succulent, rich and full-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel while delivering impressive length. This is a big, seductive and luscious but balanced Criots that manages to avoid heaviness though with that said, it is no ballerina.

The 2015 Criots-Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a fragrant bouquet with scents of red apple, frangipane and just a touch of wild fennel. This is quite attractive, even if it would benefit from more delineation. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, a smear of clear honey across the citrus fruit, touches of brioche and pralines, leading to a lightly spiced, if rather abrupt finish. This is just a little too rich for my liking and it just erases some of the terroir expression.
