Tasting Notes

92-94 Points Allen Meadows
(from a 2.54 ha parcel including La Cabotte; the yield in 2021 was only 3.6 hl/ha and this includes the fruit from La Cabotte!). An exuberantly floral-suffused nose is both elegant and airy with its array of cool and restrained apple, pear, spice and mandarin orange scents. The broad-shouldered flavors are dense to the point of opulence while also retaining the hallmark refinement while delivering first-rate length on the succulent, sappy, balanced and chalky finish. This is quite rich and sufficiently forward that it may actually be approachable young. With that said, it could use more depth so at least some cellaring should prove beneficial.

92-94 Points Wine Advocate
Including the vines that are normally bottled separately as La Cabotte, Bouchard’s 2021 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru wafts from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, nutmeg and crisp stone fruits. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it’s satiny and vibrant, with lively acids and a long, saline finish.
