After Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet is the third most famous Grand Cru to bear the name Montrachet and is a major actor in the propagation of Chardonnay around the world. Over time, this once uncultivated hill (Montrachet means 'barren mount' in French) has become a mythical place for lovers of great white wines.

This parcel is in the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet. The nearly 12 hectares of Bâtard-Montrachet vineyards lie at the foot of the "Montrachet", just the other side of the road between Puligny and Chassagne. Only 200 cases are made each year.

Notes from The Source:

"In 1989, after returning from business school in Paris, Caroline L’Estimé took over the winemaking and vineyard direction from her father, Jean-Noël Gagnard. The style at this Chardonnay focused domaine is one of subtlety led with gentle sweet golden earth tones."
