Very pure chalky aromas of lemon lime white flowers and iodine. Boasts outstanding tension and building intensity to its powerful lemon peel pineapple and crushed stone flavors. Rare precision and inner-mouth perfume here. Saturates every square millimeter of the palate yet finishes with an impression of weightlessness. A wine of great finesse this should go on for two decades or more. "The Batard is for the body while this is for the spirit" notes winemaker Eric Remy. One of my favorite wines of the vintage. 97(+?)

An airy cool and ultra-refined nose displays distinct lemon-lime and acacia blossom scents that of course include background notes of stone and saline that complement to perfection the intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess superb precision on the explosive and palate staining finish that seems to just go on and on. This is quite dry; in fact it's arguably the driest wine in the range yet this is not forbiddingly austere. I very much like the contrast between the sense of focused power and the mouth feel which is almost delicate. This is sheer class and the balance is flawless. This should go down as a classic vintage for this storied wine. - Comments: Don't miss!

The 2010 Chevalier-Montrachet comes across as quite subtle at this stage. Today it appears to lack some mid-palate depth and concentration but that may come as the wine fleshes out with further time in bottle. Even though it is quite beautiful from a textural standpoint the Chevalier is the least expressive of the grand crus. With time in the glass gorgeous floral notes and hints of honey blossom as the Chevalier shows off its sensual personality and beautifully layered fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2020+. 95+ -Antonio Galloni
