Price: $456.42 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
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.

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.

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.
