Very ripe aromas of peach nut oil and vanillin oak. Intensely mineral in the mouth conveying a strong impression of crushed stone to go with its captivating peach and nectarine fruit flavors. A very concentrated pure dense wine of considerable finesse. Finishes very aromatic and long. Offers terrific aging potential. Girardin noted that there was no hydric stress here in 2004. Wonderfully fresh and stylish grand cru.

An elegant and high-toned airy nose with apparent but not intrusive oak influence dissolves into round rich and sweet layered flavors that are surprisingly open and accessible for a young Chevalier but then the finish tightens up instantly and the expected explosion of pungent minerality arrives almost without warning. This is a relatively powerful Chevalier indeed it could be mistaken for a mineral-driven Montrachet.
