Alain’s parcel lies next to the ‘Les Demoiselles’ climat and near the Premier Cru of Le Cailleret. With stonier and chalkier soils than that of Montrachet the wines often offer more of a fresher, mineral and pleasurable drinking experience. Personally, I love drinking Chevalier-Montrachet younger, Batard- Montrachet aged and investing in Montrachet! The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is (as usual) an exchange of juice with Jean-Michel Chartron - one barrel for two barrels of Folatières and three barrels of Puligny Villages. It has a clean, precise bouquet, cold, wet limestone intermingling with citrus lemon and subtle smoky aromas. Not intense, but very focused. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, and then the purity takes over – and boy, this is a very pure Chevalier-Montrachet, offering lemon curd, peach skin, pineapple and crushed stone notes. It feels very long but at the same time quite tender. A lovely Chevalier-Montrachet from Chavy. 93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous.com
