2017 Domaine Jean Chartron Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru "Clos des Chevaliers"

SKU #1489572 96 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Jean-Michel Chartron’s 2017 Clos des Chevaliers was one of the most stunning examples of the vintage that I tasted during my three weeks in the region. The bouquet is deep, pure and shows beautiful intensity of flavor in its constellation of pear, apple, crème patissière, fresh almond, a magically complex base of chalky minerality, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very, very refined, with a lovely core of fruit, superb soil inflection, racy acids and outstanding length and grip on the gorgeous finish. This is quite ripe in 2017, coming in at 13.6 percent natural alcohol in this vintage, but is seamlessly balanced and shows no signs of pushing the envelope. A great, great bottle of Chevalier in the making. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Chartron's greatest wine is the 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Clos des Chevaliers, an immensely promising effort that wafts from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, mandarin, dried white flowers, crisp Anjou pear, pastry cream and a deft framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and structured, with superb concentration, excellent tension at the core, brisk acids, chalky dry extract and a long, mineral finish. This is an impeccably balanced Chevalier-Montrachet that can stand alongside the vintage's best. Note that Chartron will also be releasing a small barrel selection as a 'Cuvée Centennaire' to commemorate the acquisition of this clos in 1917. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An angular feel makes this white distinctive, with bracing acidity driving the peach, apple tart and baking spice flavors. Intense and balanced, this needs a year or two to hit its stride. Offers a fine, minerally finish. (BS, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark My sample of the 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Clos de Chevaliers Grand Cru comes from a 2-year old Damy barrel that will go into the regular cuvée i.e. not from the oldest vines. It has an attractive bouquet, albeit without the penetration and mineral drive of the Cuvée Centenaire. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, quite saline in the mouth with touches of blackcurrant leaf and liquorish emerging towards the finish. Very fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

94-96 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Slightly paler colour, and less oak to the nose compared to the Séléction Centenaire. But the oak shows more on the palate making the wine a little bit chunky. This may be temporary though, reversible when the wine comes out of barrel. It does have a good depth of flavour though with yellow fruit and flowers behind. Tasted: October 2018." (1/2019)
