Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

Les Exceptionnels / Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

«Whoever knows how to taste wine never again drinks it, but discovers its secrets». Salvador Dalí

It is strict and careful work with the vines, exemplary, meticulous ageing of the wines and remarkable care and know-how that mean that unique terroirs can produce «les exceptionnels», exceptional wines. This range is a selection of Grands Crus with respect for their unique value.

  • Tasting notes

    Its gold robe with emerald highlights, yellowing with age, reveals a bouquet with notes of butter and warm croissants, fern, dried fruit, spices and honey. Its structure and harmony merge into a perfect unity. Unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, enveloped and deep, it possesses all the graces under an inflexible character.

  • Food pairing

    Such power and aromatic palette demand noble, sophisticated dishes. Foie gras, but also caviar, lobster or crayfish will pay it tribute. White fishes and poultry will also be good partners for this elegant white wine.
