Robert Parker – 92
The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is showing very nicely, wafting from the glass with scents of citrus oil, nutmeg, white flowers and crisp orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly satiny and incisive, its textural attack segues into an ample mid-palate underpinned by brisk acids, concluding with a delicately saline finish. This is one of the highlights of the portfolio this year.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
