Chevalier Montrachet Demoiselles, Louis Jadot 2018
11 barrels made from half a hectare. Clear to full lemon, quite a powerful nose, chiselled white fruit. This actually seems to have more volume than the Bâtard first up – normally it is the other way round with Chevalier winning instead on finesse. This year’s Demoiselles offers amazing density without losing any of its Chevalier character. This is really impressive with waves of flavour which just keep coming back for more.

The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Les Demoiselles (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is showing very well indeed, unfurling in the glass with scents of citrus oil, fresh Anjou pear, almond paste and white flowers, deftly framed by a nicely integrated application of new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with a concentrated and tight-knit core, lively acids and a long, chalky finish.

Plump peaches, candied citrus and subtle spices on the nose. This is round, rich and silky with ripe stone and citrus fruit at the core. Full bodied and rounded, the freshness of acidity and pithiness of texture adds freshness and balance to this powerful, smoky wine. Very long and dense through to the finish.
