The 2009 Chevalier-Montrachet is all about seductiveness. It is one of the more subdued, classy wines in the lineup. Sweet, perfumed and cashmere-like on the palate, the Chevalier requires considerable attention from the taster, but it will repay that attention in spades. This is totally sublime and flat-out dazzling. Anticipated maturity: 2016+. ||This is another stunning set of wines from proprietors Mounir Saouma and Rotem Brakim. Saouma and Brakim practice some of the most risk-taking winemaking in Burgundy, especially with regards to elevage. The wines see extended aging on the lees with minimal sulfur. I tasted the 2009s in late June 2011. At the time the wines had never been racked. Readers should note that I accidentally omitted a number of wines from my reviews of the estate’s 2009 reds, in particular the wines from Vosne-Romanee. Those notes are now posted on the site. My tasting concluded with two wines served blind. These turned out to be two 2004 Meursaults. The first wine was made with a pneumatic press and aged with 4 liters of lees per barrel, the second wine was made with a mechanical press and went into barrel with 8 liters of lees. Both wines were aged 18 months and bottled by hand. As it turns out, wine #2 was considerably fresher and much more nuanced than wine #1. Wine Advocate.September, 2011
