Robert Parker – 94
The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets is very promising, opening in the glass with notes of pear, fresh peach, white flowers, beeswax and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with terrific structuring dry extract, lively acids and a long, mineral finish, it’s once again one of the highlights of the portfolio.
Jasper Morris – 95-97
Pale colour. The nose is powerful, not in an alcohol sense, but just suggesting a significant weight of flavour on the palate. Very pure white fruit, this is really brilliant, even ahead of Vides Bourses this year. There is such a huge wealth of flavour behind, excellent acidity, this will take a really long time. Really impressive.
Burghound – 94
Much more restrained and slightly cooler aromas include those of both white and yellow peach, candied lemon rind and pretty floral nuances. There is again fine verve and detail to the dense and sappy medium-bodied flavors that are combination of punch and refinement on the clean, very dry and well-balanced finale. This youthfully austere and very impressive effort should easily reward a decade plus of cellaring.
