Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru – 2014 – 94-96 points – Vinous
94 points

“From vines in the lower portion of this grand cru: Almost Riesling-like aromas of peach, quinine, ginger, mint and dusty herbs lifted by pungent minerality. Superb saline minerality and a dusty impression of extract give this wine outstanding finesse and penetration, but it’s ultimately quite smooth and impeccably balanced. Still youthfully tight but very long on the aftertaste. From Chevalier-Montrachet du Haut: Delicate floral lift to the peach and pear aromas. Less sweet and glyceral than the first sample, with an iodiney saline quality giving the middle palate a very taut impression. An assemblage of the two samples: Bright yellow. Subtly complex aromas and flavors of peach, noble herbs, flowers and smoky, flinty minerality, with a lightly metallic character. Tactile and dense but light on its feet and youthfully laid-back. Finishes scented, subtle and very long, with a tactile, dusty impression of extract.”
