Picked on 24th August at13.5% alcohol. There is a really racy tension here on the nose, strict white fruit, then the concentration really kicks in, perfect crisp white fruit, a sense of licking the limestone, all the weight necessary, and not too much overt power. Exactly how Chevalier-Montrachet should be. Tasted: October 2021.     Jasper Morris 96


An overtly floral-suffused nose speaks of the ripe essence of white peach, passion fruit, anise, exotic Asian-style tea and in particularly jasmine, tangerine rind and a hint of wood influence. There is exceptionally good density to the palate staining big-bodied flavors that exhibit impressive power on the muscular and overtly mineral-driven finale which offers massive length on the ever-so-slightly warm finale. This very serious effort is a classic Chevalier of class and grace and it's also a wine that I could still taste 24 hours later. It will be hard to find but worth it as this is one of the wines of the vintage. In a word, brilliant.

The 2020 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru opens in the glass with aromas of confit citrus, pear, freshly baked bread, hazelnuts, pastry cream and white flowers. Full-bodied, ample and seamless, it's layered and concentrated, with lively acids and a long, saline finish. William Kelley 95+
