Production is 2 x new 500 litre barrels. Fine clear bright colour. Even more intensity than the Demoiselles, but in a stricter style. Serene on the palate with a very cheerful bit of barrel toast, which adds complexity and does not subtract from the fruit. Medium plus length.
The 2019 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru comes from a single parcel within the Grand Cru next to Leroy and Leflaive - not a bad place to be located! Matured entirely in new 500-litre barrels, it has an intense bouquet with freshly squeezed lime, citrus peel and crushed rock, a hint of peony emerging with aeration. The palate is well balanced with impressive depth, a fine bead of acidity, quite saline and spicy, especially the latter towards the persistent finish. A very capable Chevalier-Montrachet, one that I think will bide its time. 2024-2045
