Chevalier Montrachet, Bouchard Père et Fils 2009
A discreet application of wood toast sets off a ripe, pure and elegant nose that features a penetrating mélange of wet stone, lemon and orange nuances as well as the classic floral aromas. The extremely rich, intense and full-bodied flavors possess surprisingly good detail given the opulence of the mid-palate and culminate in a superbly long finish. This should also reward well medium-term cellaring.
|Score: 92/94||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, February 2011|
Very pale, green-tinged color. Captivating high-pitched aromas of lavender, herbs and dusty stone. Rich on entry, giving a dense, fine-grained, almost sweet impression, then surprising acidity and minerality enliven the middle palate. The finish conveys a slightly tannic impression but remains smooth and suave, not to mention very long. This classy Chevalier will need time to express itself.
