Criots is a tiny grand cru, just one and a half hectares, making Fontaine-Gagnard one of the largest owners, with one third of a hectare. The south-facing slope, with poor limestone soils, yields a wine with superb power and tension. Fragrant, explosive fruit: a mouthwatering style. Floral and complex.
The 2019 Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru was picked on the first day of the harvest. It has a well defined, quite stony, austere bouquet that will benefit from 3-4 years in bottle. The palate is powerful on the entry with orange rind and apricot notes, quite spicy with good weight on the finish that leaves the mouth tingling on the aftertaste for 45+ seconds .Very fine.
