Criots was named in 1919 because the owner wanted to give a new name to his south facing, warmer parcel than Batard. More elegant, charming style ready to drink sooner than the other Grand Crus. It is the only Grand Cru entirely located in Chassagne, and is the smallest white Grand Cru in Burgundy.
