    Jean-Philippe always serves this wine with a twinkle in his eye, if pushed he would probably say it is his favourite cuvée. In his words it is always supple, racy and elegant. A melange of stone fruits, peaches and apricots, it was an absolute star when we tasted in October. Buttery and generous, but with huge finesse, excitingly the flavours linger for an eternity. Quite lovely.

  • Burghound, June 2022, Score: 90-92

    Cool and airy aromas of mineral reduction, citrus and a floral whiff are trimmed in admirably discreet wood influence. There is both good richness and intense to the ultra-pure, even crystalline, flavors that conclude in a chiseled, long and balanced finale. This is a classic Chevalières with its almost aggressive minerality and refined mouthfeel. In a word, lovely. Outstanding. Top value. Drink: 2026+

  • Matthew Jukes, January 2022, Score: 18.5

    Excellent! Les Chevalières manages to combine the best traits from each of the previous wines and bring them together in one bottle. There is beauty here and also great tension. This is a more closed wine than the predecessors, but it is still possible to see the layers and the calibre of fruit in this glorious wine!

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 92-94

    Mid lemon colour with a fresh green lining. Very clear, very pure, delicious white fruit. Frankly, this is gorgeous in its hillside style, rather than butter and hazelnuts. Enough flesh so it is not just about mineral tension, and very long indeed.

This has got to be the most well organised cellar in the Côte de Beaune. Jean-Philippe’s attention to detail in his winery is a good indication of his handling of fruit, and goes some way to explaining the precise and distinct characteristics found in his wines each possessing their own unique timbre. These wines are made with great care and patience, and all enjoy 12 months in barrel (he tends to use larger 600 litre demi-muids rather than the traditional 228 litre pièces) followed by a further 6 months on fine lees in tank. His painstaking attention to detail is demonstrated in his wines, which are pure and seamless. Though most of his wines are only village lieux dits, they could easily be mistaken for premiers crus.Read less

Region

Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
