Chevalier Montrachet la Cabotte, Bouchard Père et Fils 2013
**Note: Bouchard has been separately vinifying this parcel, which at one time was part of Montrachet, since 1992 though the first commercial release was not until 1997; Prost jokingly refers to this parcel as "Montrachet du haute pente", or upper slope Montrachet**
An exceptionally pure and refined nose of white flowers, green apple and discreet spice elements evidences just a touch of pain grillé. There is excellent volume but also fine precision to the well-detailed, even crystalline flavors that brim with an almost pungent minerality on the powerful, focused, notably dry and driving finish. While this is undeniably stylish and beautifully balanced, note well that this too will need at least a decade of cellaring to arrive at its full majority, but it should be well worth the wait as this is most impressive.
