Tasting Notes

The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru has a very classy bouquet, very focused and detailed with crushed rocks and yellow flowers gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a peppery opening. Great depth and intensity here as it fans out gloriously towards the finish, clearly a sophisticated Chevalier with a very persistent aftertaste. Maybe even better than I estimated from barrel.

Score: 95

The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru comes from Colin’s 0.27 hectares of vines and filled six barrels this year, three of them new. It has a complex bouquet with subtle aromas of walnut and pine nuts infusing the citrus fruit; crushed limestone aromas develop with aeration. The palate is very well balanced, the new oak lending a smooth veneer but never impeding upon the terroir expression. Traces of vanilla and white chocolate impart sweetness on a finish that feels very long. Superb.

Score: 93 - 95
