2002 Henri Boillot Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru (1.5L)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
*Don't Miss!* Radiant white flower, citrus and limestone aromas are framed by a dollop of oak spice and lead to a refined, elegant, understated flavors combining intense minerality and marvelous detail plus remarkable depth and complexity. This is edgier and brighter than the Bâtard and just oozes class and refinement as it's constructed along the classic Chevalier lines of silk, lace and an intense stoniness rather than power and richness. A brilliant effort.

Pure, vibrant aromas of apple, wet stone and white flowers. Wonderfully sweet and concentrated, with fruit-driven flavors of apple, pear, minerals and white flowers. Very dense but vibrant and light on its feet. A beauty. 94+ (ST)
Pale straw. Tiny hint of oak on the nose. Tight and restrained. Big and beefy and muscular. This wine goes for maximum impact on the palate. Lots of alcohol but a slight shortage of finesse and subtlety. Certainly there is power, but it is all potential for the moment. It should develop considerably.
