Tasting Notes

There is still a hint of unabsorbed SO2 surrounding the ever-so-mildly exotic nose of citrus, white fleshed fruit and spice. The dense, serious and powerful big-bodied flavors also exude evident minerality on the clean, dry and markedly compact finish that makes it clear that this will need at least some forbearance.

Score: 93

Just bottled under Diam 10, the 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru opens in the glass with aromas of Meyer lemon, green apple, pastry cream and white flowers that's exactly as I remember it. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and attractively vibrant, with good depth and concentration at the core, succulent acids and a long, precise finish. Pure and delicate, this is a lovely Chevalier in an understated, makeup-free style that confirms its excellent showing from barrel. While it's a little shut down after the mise en bouteille, the charm and expressiveness of the vintage mean that it is still quite open for inspection.

Score: 94

The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru offers up aromas of lemon oil, pastry cream, white flowers, crushed rocks and mandarin. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with excellent concentration, chalky extract and juicy acids that lend the wine lovely precision, concluding with a pure, tongue-tingling finish. This is very promising and will be well worth seeking out.

Score: 93 - 95

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 04 January 2019

The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru comes from all four terraces in the vineyard. It has a crisp bouquet with fine mineralité, very focused and intense, with touches of hazelnut developing with time. The well-balanced palate displays a fine bead of acidity. Quite poised in the mouth, leading to a harmonious tangerine and crushed stone finish. This conveys a nascent authority that stands it in good stead for the future. Excellent.

Score: 92 - 94
