    Description

    Chevalier Montrachet 1996
    M. Niellon
    Bottle (3)
    "One of the greatest wines Michel Niellon has ever made and when quality rises to this level, words are frankly inadequate to convey what can only be described as an intense emotional reaction. Captivating and completely seductive aromas explode from the glass with a purity and intensity that are hard to believe. Aromas of white flowers, limestone and dried herbs overlay astoundingly focused, intense and detailed flavors with an incredible minerality and dazzling purity and a finish that seemingly goes on forever. This is reference standard Chevalier and wine doesn't get much better than this." (98pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec 2009)
