2013 Bouchard Pere & Fils Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru - 750ml
Meadows Burghound - 94 Points
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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94 Points
Bright lemon-yellow. Deep, smoky, soil-driven aromas of pineapple, nectarine, peach, iodine and clove. Tactile and dusty on the palate, with strong oak spice and iodine minerality currently dominating the wine's underlying orchard fruit flavors. More musclebound and Montrachet-like than the "regular" Chevalier-Montrachet in spite of possessing lower acidity (3.9 grams per liter). Finishes very long and firm, with enticing notes of orange, gingerbread and honey. Real creamy density here, but this needs more elevage. (9/2014)
