This is a mesmerising village wine. It’s sourced from three lieux-dits – Les Meix Goudard, Blanchot Dessous and En Journoblot – all of which surround Grand Cru Criots Bâtard Montrachet. The nose is richer and creamier in comparison to the Saint-Aubins, offering riper stone-fruit, but it’s still pithy and taut with a mineral-driven finish. Think greengage rather than yellow plum, with shiny red apple running through its core. There’s a beautiful balance between its rich fruit and salinity.
