Bienvenues Batard Montrachet Grand Cru, 2012

  Domaine Henri Boillot

Bienvenues Batard Montrachet Grand Cru

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Bâtard-Montrachet

Prior to appellation contrôlée in 1939 Bâtard used to be a vineyard of 20.37 hectares, encompassing the Criots and Bienvenue Grand Crus as well as some Chassagne 1er Crus. Today it is still one of the largest white Grands Crus in Burgundy, encompassing 11.97ha. As a big vineyard, and given that it spans both the Puligny and Chassagne communes, style can vary. Generally speaking, though, Bâtard will tend to be a full-bodied, rich and particularly borad-shouldered example of white Burgundy.
