A wonderful set of wines here as ever from the Bourgogne Blanc right through to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet.

A wonderful set of wines here as ever from the Bourgogne Blanc right through to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet. Yields were a little down on a normal vintage, but it was the heat and water stress that really marked the vintage with particular effect on volumes from his Chaumee and En Remilly sites.

2020 was an outstanding vintage for Philippe and his team, that really took advantage of the unique conditions of the vintage to bring out opulence and purity of their fruit whilst maintaining a firm, taut minerality that is synonymous with the Domaine.

Just two barrels made, at my tasting this was very tightly knit and not revealing too much. The fleshy texture and silky rounded mouthfeel was beautifully balanced with lively acidity that held tension and verve. Eventually yellow stone fruit and herbal notes poked through and a wet stone minerality, distinctive of the winemaker shown through on the long intense finish. There is power and presence just waiting to burst out. Nick Daniell, Club Wine Buyer

The 2020 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is beautifully defined on the nose, very delineated with crushed stone, hints of yellow plum, fern and green apples. Like Colin’s Les Demoiselles, there an unanticipated strictness and linearity here and that translates across to the palate. Very cohesive, nicely poised, though you could argue that it does not possess the penetration or complexity of a top vintage like the 2017. Still, this should give 15-20 years drinking pleasure. .91-93pts Neal Martin

Fine pale primrose. There is less oak and more weight of fruit here, compared to the Demoiselles, but is it quite as classy? I think so. All in pure white fruit as always with Chevalier, very graceful, not too bony this year, the flesh covers the structure nicely. Extremely pure. Perfectly judged acidity. A very fine example.
