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

James Suckling

This has incredible aromatic definition with lemons, limes and grapefruit, as well as stony elements with oranges and praline. The palate has a beautifully precise feel with very bright citrus and white peaches, leading to gentle lime-marmalade and hazelnut notes to close. Super long, focused and already approachable.

A rich and juicy style, this white delivers peach, apple tart and spice aromas and flavors, backed by lively structure. Intense and resonant on the long aftertaste.

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.

2014 Chevalier-Montrachet: (from a 2.54 ha parcel). Discreet notes of wood and petrol add breadth to the cool and pure aromas of citrus, acacia blossom, wet stone and green apple. There is excellent volume and cut to the tension-filled large-scaled flavors that brim with minerality before concluding in a palate staining, powerful and beautifully persistent finish.

The flavors here are slightly candied, with butterscotch, lemon drop, peach and pastry notes. Bright and long, with sweet baking spice notes dominating the finish for now. Shows terrific midpalate intensity, followed by a subtle aftertaste.

Decanter

Overtly fresh aroma and a clear mineral character, with no obvious reduction. In the mouth this is on a massive scale : full of com-plexity and displaying a beautiful energy. A mineral wine but with brilliant clarity and even some tannin too.

Wine Spectator

Sleek and tangy, with lemon, spiced apple, vanilla and toasty notes. Tightens up, echoing lemon and spice details on the finish. With air, this evokes a floral accent and becomes harmonious.

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.
