According to legend, the name of this white Grand Cru comes from how the Seigneur of Montrachet divided up the land between his two sons. One became a chevalier or a knight, and fought the enemy during the Crusades, and the other was illegitimate, giving rise to the name of Bâtard-Montrachet, located just beneath Montrachet.
The Bienvenues Bâtard climat is tucked within that of Bâtard, a tiny patch of 3.7 hectares, and the first records of it date back at least six centuries. Our plot of 0.46 hectares is one of the biggest. Planted in 1977, the vines face the rising sun.
