TASTING NOTES

"The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru delivers a vibrant but reserved bouquet of lemon zest, white flowers and crushed chalk that is still some distance from displaying all its breadth of expression. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and tensile, with a tight-knit core, searingly intense chalky extract and an electric sense of energy, concluding with a long finish. This is the most linear Chevaliers I tasted in the 2017 vintage, which was typically somewhat more open at the same stage in Anne-Claude's day, so it will be interesting to see how much plenitude it displays in bottle." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"An all-but mute if cool and elegant nose only grudgingly reveals its aromas of wet stone, white flowers, tangerine peel and jasmine tea. There is almost painful intensity to the larger-scaled yet refined flavors that brim with both dry extract and a driving minerality before concluding in an equally long finish. This too is very clearly built-to-age and is a superb Chevalier that is going to require extended patience." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue75

"Precise, high-pitched scents of lemon and lime ice and crushed rock. The palate communicates outstanding stony, limey intensity that's accentuated by an impression of strong acidity. But despite its penetrating cut and low pH (3.15, according to Pierre Vincent), the wine's spine is covered by adequate flesh, even in the early going. Flavors of pineapple and liquid stone are complicated by bracing citricity and a salty element on the slowly rising, palate-staining, utterly gripping finish." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Seductively rich and spiced on the nose. Deep and gloriously inviting. Chewy and full in the mouth but with a tension and no fat. Precise and stony on the finish, drawing in and standing upright. Tall and glorious. Deep and long. Fabulous." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
