Tasting Notes

A densely fruited nose that is more complex if less elegant also only grudgingly offers up notes of wet stone, mandarin orange peel, white flowers, pear liqueur and plenty of spice and soft wood nuances. There is an almost painful intensity to the even more concentrated and overtly powerful broad-shouldered flavors that brim with dry extract that simultaneously coats the palate while buffering the extremely firm acid spine on the incredibly long finish. While perhaps not one for the ages, this is still a seriously good Montrachet.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru has a stricter bouquet than the Chevalier-Montrachet, more mineral-driven and, you might argue, meaner and more challenging. But maybe that’s what you want from such a noble vineyard. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Quite saline and lightly spiced, touches of ginger developing toward the finish, like the Chevalier. However, this fans out a bit more than its knightly sibling, delivering a touch more salinity on the very long aftertaste. Drink 2022-2045.

Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2019

Aromas of crisp peach, mandarin oil, orange blossom and mint introduce the 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot), a full-bodied, ample wine with a broad, textural attack and juicy balancing acids, though it can't match the density or cut of the stunning Chevalier Demoiselles from domaine fruit.
