Criots Bâtard Montrachet, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard 2017
A restrained and ever-so-mildly exotic nose features notes of mandarin orange, melon, mango and floral nuances. The silky and highly seductive broad-shouldered yet refined flavors brim with mouth coating dry extract before terminating in a beautifully persistent, complex, balanced and harmonious finish. This is excellent and while it will clearly amply reward extended cellaring, it should be approachable after only 5-ish years.
