Bienvenues Batard Montrachet Grand Cru
Clerc’s Bienvenues-Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru drinks beautifully. It is the most forward of the Grands Crus. This is a pillowy wine, which envelopes the palate with layers of richness. Flavors of lanolin, honey and peach, mixed with nuances of oak, gives this wine its Grand Cru breed and finesse.
About the Producer
Originally located on the main square in Puligny-Montrachet, the Clerc estate dates back to the 16th century. Upon his retirement in 2002, Bernard Clerc placed Vincent Girardin in charge of his vineyards and winemaking. He was eventually replaced by the talented Eric Germain. The domaine's 11 hectares of vineyards are centered around Puligny-Montrachet and include three Grands Crus.
Farming practices: The vineyards are farmed biodynamically. The vines are trained high to enhance photosynthesis.
