A richer styled wine which does not go over the line into complete opulence. Beautifully poised with notes of nectarine, Mirabelle plum and toasted brioche. Oak is more apparent than on Michel'sother two wines, yet it is also very well integrated with only smoothness in sight. Finishes incredibly long.
A very ripe nose that flirts with the exotic displays notes of peach, apricot and mango together with discreet wood nuances gives way to rich, full, powerful and well-detailed flavors that offer the hallmark minerality, all wrapped in a delicious finish that delivers solid depth and length. This is actually quite stylish if not classic. Drink 2015+.
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.
