Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 31

(from a 2.54 ha parcel that gave only 25 hl/ha in '05 due to the very tiny berries that had little juice) Prost was, justifiably, extremely proud of this wine and observed that it may be the best "straight" Chevalier that he's ever made. Not surprisingly, this is a good deal more elegant than the Bâtard with gorgeously pure floral and white fruit, stone and subtle spice aromas that seamlessly merge into the almost painfully intense and vibrant flavors that, like the Perrières, possess crystalline purity and huge length. This is a knockout Chevy and if you can find it, don't miss it.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 140

($400) Aromas of white peach and crushed stone. Sweet, dense and powerful, with strong minerality giving it a strong sappy quality. The ripeness here is almost exotic, and yet this very sweet, long wine comes off as young today. I'd wait four years. Interestingly, winemaker Philippe Prost believes that the '06s are both riper and more primary than the saline, creamy '05s, and that they need a bit more time in bottle than the earlier set of wines.

Again perfumed, hints of white flowers and citrus. Then a different animal on the palate. Powerful and evident oak but lovely harmony already between oak and fruit. (JH)

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: #180

Mint, talcum, marzipan, and candied lemon dominate the penetratingly high-toned aromas of their 2006 Chevalier-Montrachet, which exhibits a remarkable alliance of textural richness and citric brightness, and a finish of fascinating, low-toned, chalk, stone, citrus zest, and nut oils. For all of the sheer ripeness on display here, there is no sense of superficial sweetness, with fresh lime saturating a palate of formidable density and imposingly ripe pit fruits. And for all of this wine's more than 14% alcohol, there is barely a hint of warmth. It exhibits to an even greater degree than the corresponding Meursault Perrieres a nearly ineffable, for lack of a better word "mineral" character, as well as an uncanny combination of amplitude and elegance; sheer mass yet vivacity. This memorably long beauty should age well for at least a dozen years.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Entices with its floral and citronella aromas, then follows through with macaroon, lime and mineral flavors. These are set against a refined structure and a creamy texture that lends a lighter-than-air feel. The finish goes on and on.
