2017 Domaine Etienne Sauzet Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru

SKU #1489427 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark When it's as good as this, Chevalier is every bit as exciting as the more famous and expensive Montrachet. This four-barrel parcel from the highest part of the grand cru is particularly delicate and refined. Tangy, crunchy and mouthwateringly fresh, it's a brilliant wine that wasn't easy to produce in a vintage like 2017. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

96 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The domaine’s 2017 Chevalier is a bit more reserved in profile out of the blocks than either the Bâtard or the Bienvenues. The bouquet is a pure and very classy mix of apple, pear, pastry cream, a very complex base of chalky minerality, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and shows off lovely depth at the core, with great mineral drive, bright, zesty acids and great length and grip on the refined and very, very promising finish. This will need time, but it is going to be great and perhaps not quite as muscular in profile as the previous two grand crus. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark from 25+ year old vines that are situated on the very highest of the 4 terraces; aged in 50% new oak). Here too the restrained nose is beautifully layered with a broad-ranging nose of wet stone, freshly sliced apple, citrus, white flowers and ample spice nuances. There is terrific density to the impressively big-bodied and powerful flavors that display plenty of the hallmark minerality on the palate coating, stony and super-saline finish that once again just goes on and on. This beautifully well-balanced effort should also age effortlessly for the better part of two decades. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale, green-tinged yellow. Lovely lift to the aromas of lime zest, white flowers and powdered stone. Dense, salty and penetrating, conveying an impression of mineral depth without any weight. Very zesty wine--distinctly lemon-limey in the context of this collection. Finishes subtly saline and very long, with a mouth-drying element of powdered stone and terrific floral lift. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2018)
