Tasting Notes

Toasted brioche, baking spice and butterscotch aromas and flavors surround the core of peach, golden apple and hazelnut in this extroverted white. There’s plenty going on, including excellent harmony and a vibrant structure that will support this for years. Best from 2021 through 2029.

Score: 95

Once again pungent sulfur-tinged aromas dominate the nose. More interesting are the creamy and highly sophisticated medium weight plus flavors that exude plenty of minerality on the impressively long if somewhat one-dimensional finish. This firmly structured effort will clearly need to develop more depth to merit the upper end of my projected range.

Score: 91 - 94

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2027+ 10 June 2019

The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is immensely promising, unfurling in the glass with an appropriately reserved nose of lemon oil, candle wax, white currants, toasted bread and dried spring flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and layered with a satiny attack, excellent concentration at the core and a long, expansive finish. This must number among the best kept secrets in grand cru white Burgundy, and I encourage readers to seek it out.

Score: 95

Bright yellow. Aromas of yellow fruits, white flowers, marzipan and minerals are complicated by a sexy leesy quality and some sweet oak notes. Very rich, thick wine with terrific concentration and ripe acidity; flavors of yellow fruits, flowers, spices, crushed rock and hazelnut spread out to saturate the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Finishes tactile and unflagging but at the same time subtle and quite suave, without any of the youthful aggressiveness shown by the Demoiselles.

Score: 92 - 94
