- Presentation of the winery
In the 1990s, famous Lalou Bize-Leroy, CEO of the house Leroy, shareholder of Romanée-Conti, bought the Auvenay winery, which includes two grands crus in Côte de Nuits and some beautiful plots in large white terroirs of Côte de Beaune. This area of 4 hectares apply the same techniques of cultivation and vinification that area Leroy. The vines are biodynamic and cover many names, from aligoté to grand cru Chevalier Montrachet. We find in these bottles the style that made the reputation of the great Burgundies. Few people have the chance to taste the production of this property of Côte d’Or, as the global demand is high and the prices very expensive.
Criots Batard Montrachet 2006 has a yellow color, with shimmering straw. The nose of this wine is floral, fruity, with hints of acacia, apple tatin, buttered toast and grilled. On the palate, the attack is subtle, its texture is creamy, with a nice volume. This wine is powerful, elegant, full-bodied, with hints of minerality.
Only 600 bottles exist of this wine and they are numbered. Our numbers are: 153-154.
