Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru

2018

This famous grand cru has soils so rocky that Michel had to use small explosives when he replanted his plot of 28 rows of vines in 1970. The shallow soils force the vines to struggle as they produce small quantities of exceptional, highly-extracted fruit. The resulting wine is mineral-driven with a strikingly complex nose of ripe fruit, acacia blossom and stone.

"This intense white offers smoky aromas and flavors, along with citronella, lime blossom, hazelnut, peach and buttered brioche notes. Creamy, with an aftertaste that lingers in a subtle, ethereal way. Best from 2021 through 2030."
