Tasting Notes

The 2016 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Demoiselles was reduced from the usual nine or ten barrels to just two this year because of frost damage. It has higher-toned fruit compared to the Montrachet at the moment: orange blossom, white peach, white flowers and a subtle cold stone scent that becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is tensile on the entry with very fine focus. There is a pleasant saline note that becomes pronounced on the second half, spicier than I recall the 2015 being last year, with impressive persistence. Excellent. Drink 2021-2038.

Score: 93/95Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (234), December 2017

The Demoiselles is impressive in 2016, opening in the glass with notes of white flowers, apple, lemon oil and wet stones, framed by a touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, racy and vertical, with good concentration and impressively tight-knit and serious, its finish long and precise.
