Description

The 2014 Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a crisp, white chocolate-tinged bouquet with orange blossom scents overtaking those with time in the glass. The palate is vibrant and peachy on the entry, a tropical-inclined Criots with white chocolate and pralines returning on the aftertaste. A very well-made Criots this year from Lucien Le Moine, though it is a couple of lengths behind the Chevalier-Montrachet.

High-toned aromas of orange liqueur, dusty stone and peat; I was reminded of lichen on rock. Boasts outstanding texture and sweetness, with the orange liqueur quality carrying through on the palate. Sexy notes of warm stones and peat add a Montrachet-like quality. This very thick wine suggests higher alcohol than the Bienvenues but in fact it’s a moderate 13.2%, according to Mounir Saouma.
