    Chevalier Montrachet 2016
    M. Niellon
    Bottle (3)

    "Soil-driven nose offers aromas of lemon zest, menthol and crushed-stone minerality. By far the sweetest and most concentrated of these young 2016s, with lovely fruit intensity buttressed by underlying mineral spine and harmonious acidity. Balanced and consistent from start to finish, this mineral-driven wine spreads out to dust the palate without leaving any impression of weight. The most refined of these 2016s by a wide margin, densely packed but not at all hard-edged." (93 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Sep. 2018)

    "A slightly toasty nose features perfumed notes of Granny Smith apples, white peach, spiced pear and acacia blossom. Once again there is impressive richness to the broad-shouldered yet refined flavors that possess very good verve on the delicious, mouth coating and stony finish. This is a very ripe yet balanced effort that should age well over the mid-term but also drink well young." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #71, Jun. 2018)
