A slightly richer and more flamboyant, tropical fruit flavoured Chevalier than some years. This almost has a Montrachet texture and feel about it in 2012, with its great layered buttered generous toffee fruit mouth feel. A deliciously rewarding style.
Chevalier-Montrachet is a tiny Grand Cru appellation for white wine situated on the stony slopes just above Le Montrachet towards the southern end of the Cote d'Or. The wines are exceptional, if slightly lighter in style than their neighbour down the hill.
