    Criots Batard Montrachet 2000
    D'Auvenay (Leroy)
    Bottle (1)

    "The nose is a fascinating blend of stones and white orchard fruit that introduces satin-textured, distinguished, classy, dense, powerful flavors of astonishing length and complexity. This is the embodiment of the phrase "power without weight" as this just rocks the palate and completely coats it yet it is never heavy or tiring. Fireworks in a glass and this should live for 20 years or more. Criots is considered by many to be a second tier grand cru but this wine eloquently demonstrates that in the right hands, it is more than capable of delivering simply mind boggling quality. In short, this is reference standard Criots against which most others are found seriously wanting." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #7, July 2002)
