Tasting Notes

A discreet application of wood can be found on the slightly riper and more obviously exotic nose that offers up essence of pear, spiced apple and acacia blossom aromas. The exceptionally rich, dense and powerful imposingly-scaled flavors brim with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm acid spine shaping the powerful, stony and impressively long finish. As is usually the case in warmer vintages, this is more Montrachet than Chevalier in style in 2017.

Score: 94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru is from the upper part of Montrachet, a 0.2-hectare monopole. It has a very harmonious bouquet with touches of brioche, orange pith and apricot blossom, all very pretty and refined. The well-balanced palate features clementine and white peach notes. A little more mineral-driven than the regular Chevalier, with a very persistent finish. An excellent Chevalier-Montrachet that should give two decades or more of drinking pleasure. Drink 2023-2045.

Score: 93/95Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2019

There are four barrels of the 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru, a superb wine that unfurls in the glass with aromas of lemon oil, mandarin orange, pastry cream and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a layered, concentrated mid-palate, tangy acids and lovely purity and definition, concluding with a long finish.
