Chevalier-Montrachet 2017

January 2019

94-96 Points

Vinous

Compellingly silky, rich and sweet, with its ripe citrus flavors joined by spices, wild herbs and anise. For all its early mid-palate appeal, this wine finishes classically dry and firm, with an almost tannic impression and great rising, palate-saturating length. Wonderfully classy and light on its feet, this wine boasts the strongest projection of inner-mouth aromatics of all of these 2017s to this point. –ST

Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet 2014

September 2016

95

Vinous

Pale, bright yellow. Alluring high-pitched perfume of lime blossom, white peach, flowers and lavender sea salt. Penetrating, gripping wine with a superb spine of acidity and minerality to its savory flavors of white peach, lemon and crushed stone. Displays a wonderfully light touch and a fine-grained texture but also powerful stony mineral spine for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. An outstanding vintage for this bottling, finishing with almost painful cut and uncommon lift.

Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet 2015

September 2016

92-94

Vinous

(from a crop level of 31 hectoliters per hectare): Musky aromas of white peach, lemon, lime and piquant tangerine peel, complicated by a suggestion of crushed stone. Densely packed, chewy and sappy, with integrated acidity and solid minerality giving the wine terrific freshness and definition for its vintage. The broad, echoing finish features an element of smoky minerality. Hints of rose and peony throughout give this classically dry wine a light touch.
