Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru bottle

Compared to the steep slopes of the Côte de Nuits, Montrachet is surprising because although its name is a corruption of Mont Rachet , meaning bald mountain, it s fairly flat and arid.

The grand cru white wine Bâtard-Montrachet is said to take its name from when the Seigneur of Montrachet divided his land between his two sons. One was a knight who fought the enemy during the Crusades. The other was illegitimate, hence the name of the cru Bâtard-Montrachet, located just above Montrachet.
