FINEST & RAREST

Burgundy; Côte de Beaune - CHEVALIER

2006 CHEVALIER MONTRACHET, Grand Cru, Philippe Colin. Burgundy

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Chevalier Montrachet is one of the five great Grand Crus sites in Puligny. It is the highest of the five and is often the most elegant and fine of the group
Press Reviews: 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
Aromas of pineapple, ginger, crushed stone and vanillin, spicy oak. Wonderfully sweet on entry, then stony and tactile in the mid-palate, with penetrating stone fruit and quinine flavors and a very long, palate-dusting back end. This youthfully taut grand cru needs a good five years of patience.
92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound:
Soft wood toast highlights an elegant, pure and ultra refined nose of primarily white flowers and subtle spice and mineral hints that are also reflected by the round, rich and unusually generous flavors, at least in the context of a young Chevalier, that are perhaps a bit less precise than usual but more powerful as well, all wrapped in an intensely sappy and palate staining finish. If it weren't for the intense minerality, this would frankly be more in the character of a fine Bâtard than a cut from the cloth Chevalier. Either way, it should reward 5 to 7 years of cellar time.
