  • Tasting Notes

Description

An overtly exotic nose features ripe and fresh notes of mostly dried yellow orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The rich, full-bodied and powerful flavors possess fine intensity and a seductive texture, all wrapped in a mouth coating, focused and impressively complex finale.

– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 92-94

 

The 2013 Criots Batard Montrachet Grand Cru has a detailed limestone and flint-scented bouquet that is very direct and focused-no messing about here. The palate is vibrant and energetic with hints of mandarin and grapefruit segueing into quite weighty and sustained finish. I fancy that this will gain considerable weight throughout its barrel maturation. This is a super Criots ’13 that will age with style.

– Neal Martin, Robertparker.com, Score: 94-96

 

Sexy aromas of almond flower and honey. At once rich and penetrating, with a flavor of peach oil enlivened by powerful minerality. Wonderfully balanced wine in a serious, distinctly masculine vein.

– Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, Score: 92-94
