Tasting Notes

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,, 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.
