Domaine Vincent et Francois Jouard Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2017

Le Bâtard-Montrachet reveals its power in its youth with a firm character and very strong, powerful aromas ... The wines are extremely robust and take time to reach their best.  They are almond-green in colour, turning yellower with age, when they develop great length on the palate with long-lasting body and aromas of honey, toasted bread and truffles. 

Domaine Vincent et Francois Jouard Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2017

This Grand Cru is made up of two parcels in Chassagne-Montrachet - one covering 9 ares planted in 1941, and the other covering 3.70 ares from 1996.  Les Bâtard sits on brown calcareous soils enriched with clay and silt. Its climate is warm with good exposure and well-draining soil with some gravel, which ensures that the grapes ripen well.

Vinification

Harvested by hand. The grapes are immediately pressed. After a natural light settling in vat, the wine goes into French oak barrels (mainly Burgundy) where it will ferment in a cool cellar.  The wine is aged for around 12 months in barrels, of which one third are new, and the remainder used for up to 3 vintages.  The wines will have the lees stirred up twice a week until final blending. The wines undergo a fining and a light filtration before bottling.
