Critic Notes

The 2015 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru comes from their 0.2 hectares of vine. Comparing it directly with the regular Chevalier-Montrachet, it feels more nuanced at first, but then repays aeration and offers gorgeous praline and even subtle marzipan scents seamlessly integrated with the citrus fruit. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, more cohesive and harmonious than the regular Chevalier, with superb tension and nervosité on the finish considering the growing season. This is an exquisite white Burgundy 2015 that should represent one of the very few with ageing potential. Dec 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2020-2040

The 2015 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru offers up a youthful but expressive bouquet of hazelnut, apple, preserved citrus, pear and almond paste. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, intense and racy, with a lovely line of succulent acidity, and a penetrating, chalky finish that lingers on the tongue. While this is beautifully fresh and vibrant for a 2015 white Burgundy, it's also quite structurally giving and should drink very well on release. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com

Pale color. More closed on the nose than the "regular" Chevalier-Montrachet, with a metallic minerality that calls to mind a dry Riesling. Then very rich, classically dry and youthfully unyielding on the palate, with apple, pear, citrus and dusty stone flavors framed and lifted by terrific acidity. Much less fleshy today than the first Chevalier but equally sappy, and best right now on the slowly building, rising finish. This gripping wine shows no obvious heat despite its 13.8% alcohol.
