(Bouchard has been separately vinifying this parcel, which at one time was part of Montrachet, since 1992 though the first commercial release was not until 1997) As it usually it, this is a clear step up in virtually every facet with another dimension of aromatic elegance and complexity to the very ripe and slightly exotic pain grillé-infused nose. This is borderline painfully intense, refined, focused and pure with its big, rich and sweet flavors that despite all the punch, remains in absolutely perfect balance as the density of the mid-palate buffers completely the firm acid spine. This will live for years and is one of the wines of the vintage. Highly recommended.

Very pure but reticent aromas of pineapple, lemon peel, minerals, iodine and clove. Powerful on the attack, then cooler and more restrained in the middle than the "regular" Chevalier. Wonderfully pure but stony and dry, even austere. Very young wine, distinctly less sexy today than the Chevalier but chewy with extract.
