2010 Domaine Louis Jadot (Heritiers) Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru "Demoiselles"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A huge, complete wine, the 2010 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles boasts stunning inner perfume and layers of expressive fruit, all supported by veins of minerality that occasionally appear hidden by the wine’s sheer stuffing. In 2010, the Demoiselles impresses for its verticality, fabulous overall balance and completeness. It is another wine that should handsomely repay cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2020. (AG)
*Collectibles* As much about the texture as the flavors and how they fit together. The lime blossom, peach, mineral, vanilla and clove notes are embedded in the smooth, creamy body of this white, kept lively by juicy acidity. Finishes long and harmonious. Best from 2016 through 2029. (BS)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
*Don't Miss* Here there is no reduction and the purity of the elegant if highly restrained nose of citrus, acacia blossom and pungent wet stone aromas is stunning. Not surprisingly, the medium-bodied flavors are much finer than those of the Bâtard or Corton-Charlemagne though not as big or powerful. The acid spine is also quite firm but somewhat better integrated as there is no obvious malic tang, all wrapped in a gorgeously intense, lingering and impeccably well-balanced finish.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pale, bright yellow. Sappy aromas of lemon peel, powdered chalk, fresh herbs and tobacco (Lardiere identified "green hazelnut bark"). Utterly silky and seamless, but with superb energy to the flavors of ripe citrus peel and wild herbs. Gains in power and thickness as it opens in the glass. Really outstanding inner-mouth tension here. The rising finish features a whiplash of exotic citrus peel and oils. This should be long-lived. 95(+?) points. (ST)
