Pure, soil-inflected nose combines vineyard peach, wet stone and spices. Broad but extremely fine-grained, lovely sweetness of fruit for a thoroughly dry wine. Flavors of lemon, lime and white flowers, along with a strong stony character.

A surprising amount of oak spice, indeed ethereal aromas of white flower and limestone followed by medium full flavors of simply unbelievable intensity and stunning length.

Chevalier-Montrachet is one of the four justly famous Grand Cru Chardonnay vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet appellation in Burgundy. The 18-acre vineyard is located up the slope from Le Montrachet and shares Le Montrachet’s excellent southern exposure, though Chevalier-Montrachet’s soil is considerably thinner and more rocky. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has noted that Chevalier-Montrachet is “full, firm” and has “a great deal of depth and elegance.” The largest landholders are Bouchard Pere et Fils, 7.5 acres; Leflaive, 4 acres; and Louis Jadot, 1.5 acres.
