Bienvenues Batard-Montrachet is a tiny wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France, specifically on the famous Cote-d'Or in the commune of Puligny-Montrachet which lies a few kilometres south of Beaune near where the N74 meets the D974.
The appellation achieved recognition in 1939, some two years after the Batard-Montrachet was declared. It covers just 3.5 hectares and only produces 146 hectolitres of Grand Cru white wine.
The style of wines produced here are very limited because this is perfect terroir for the production of great white wines from the Chardonnay grape. Therefore only white wines are permitted and only Chardonnay can be used.
