Description

This is quite a bit riper than the Perrières with a layered and ever-so-mildly exotic nose of mostly dried yellow orchard fruit, in particular peach, apricot and nectarine. There is excellent richness to the round and mouth coating big-bodied flavors that possess excellent intensity and punch on the slightly bitter and clipped finish. Note that my score offers the benefit of the doubt that the bitterness is sulfur related (and thus should dissipate) rather than linked to any under ripeness of the supporting phenolics.

There is just one barrel of the 2012 Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, and it is magnificent. This is another wine that has maintained gorgeous freshness and aromatic lift, vintage conditions notwithstanding. White flowers, lemon and pear notes all take shape in the glass. The Criots feels like silk on the palate. All the elements are nuanced, finessed and finely knit throughout. From start to finish, the Criots simply dazzles.
