(from a 2.54 ha parcel that gave only 25 hl/ha in '05 due to the very tiny berries that had little juice) A superbly elegant, stylish and high-toned orange blossom and spice-suffused nose nuanced by hints of wet stone and lime merges into slightly toasty and flavors that are built on a base of firm minerality and culminate in a rich, powerful and hugely long finish. This is always a very fine Chevalier but in '05 it's even better than usual and worth a look.

($315) Multidimensional aromas of lemon, lime, powdered stone and white flowers. Dense, silky and fat with fruit. There's incredible depth, volume and extract to the pineapple, stone and floral flavors but a complete absence of rough edges and no sense of excess weight. The compellingly sweet finishing flavors of lime and flowers are unflagging. A big boy but still an infant-and a great wine in the making.
