Massively Structured Wines

The Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet appellation is for white wine from Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune sub-region of Burgundy, East of France. Its vineyard extends on only 0.03 square kilometers. It forms a flat where the conditions of the vine’s exploitation are less favorable than on the sloping slopes of Montrachet or Chevalier-Montrachet.

The soils are relatively thick and clayey, which makes them less draining. The Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet vines benefit from a good East exposure and give wines worthy of their Grand Cru status. 17200 liters are produced each year.

Chardonnay is expressed in a way very similar to the Bâtard-Montrachet appellation through luxury, a very massive structure, and vibrant aromas. These Grands Crus Blancs have excellent aging potential.
