    Chevalier Montrachet 1996
    Les Demoiselles, L. Jadot
    crc exposing cork
    Jeroboam (1)

    "The purity, elegance and sheer beauty of this wine is frankly difficult to adequately describe as words just don't seem up to the task. There is nuance after nuance among the brilliantly delineated aromas of white flowers, citrus, wet stone and rose blossoms that perfectly complement the focused and laser-precise medium full flavors that are like rolling liquid rocks around in the mouth. There is a barely contained intensity and one can sense the slow build from the mid-palate to the explosive finish that goes on and on. While no where near ready, this is so good that it's still a wonderful experience to drink and it's comforting to know for those that own it that it's still on its way up. In short, this is a brilliant wine, indeed a text book example and quite simply the finest Jadot Demoiselles I have ever had the pleasure to drink." (98 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec. 2009)
