Description

100 Points James Suckling
Its really hard to imagine how a white Brugundy could be more flinty and minerally than this super-concentrated and super-vibrant Chevalier Montrachet. Lovely aromas of lemon blossom, jasmine, tangerine and nectarine, alongside all the stony stuff. Then comes the staggeringly long finish that is totally pure and precise. From Bouchard’s 2.3-hectare holding, which comprises almost a third of the entire Grand Cru site.

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Bouchard’s 2019 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru confirms its fine showing last year, unwinding in the glass with scents of pear, citrus oil and toasted bread, complemented by hints of nutmeg, praline and white flowers. Full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it’s satiny and incisive, with terrific depth at the core, chalky structuring extract, lively acids and a long, resonant finish. This is as compelling an infant Chevalier as I can remember tasting at this address, and it should enjoy a brilliant future. Drink 2029 – 2055.
