Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet is the rarest of the Montrachet Grands Crus, at just 1.57 hectares. The soils here are stonier, with a little less clay, producing a more restrained style of Chardonnay. Bichot’s 2020 is a triumph: firm and bright, with plenty of minerality, citrus and light, fresh white fruit notes on the nose. The delicate and elegant palate is both linear and multi-dimensional. Beautiful acidity creates tension on the mid-palate, balancing the concentrated, rich fruit, driving on to the long, narrow finish. There’s more power here than is first apparent, with loads of fleshy white fruit and plenty of muscle. This serious effort from Bichot is proof of the Maison’s ability to produce top Grands Crus.
