Vinous – 95
Bright yellow. Musky yellow peach, grilled nuts and flinty minerality on the nose. Plush, silky and rich; in fact, downright voluptuous for the year, but with terrific mineral energy to its ripe stone fruit flavors. Finishes tactile and long, with excellent verve. This outstanding wine will reward aging but there’s nothing hard about it even today.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2033
Robert Parker – 95
Tasted blind at the annual â€oeBurgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru has a powerful but controlled bouquet with scents of dried honey, brioche and orange blossom, a touch of mineralité tucked just behind. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, lively in the mouth with very impressive weight, retaining superb delineation and focus on the gunflint finish that has more to give, and it will with 4-5 years in bottle. This is sophisticated and entrancing. Tasted May 2016.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035
