BH 97
Burghound, June 2015
(BH94-97 points) Like the Puligny villages the expressive nose plays right on the edge of exoticism with its dried yellow orchard fruit elements that add breadth if not necessarily elegance to the citrus, floral, spice... (BH94-97 points) Like the Puligny villages the expressive nose plays right on the edge of exoticism with its dried yellow orchard fruit elements that add breadth if not necessarily elegance to the citrus, floral, spice and discreet herbal tea nuances. There is absolutely stunning intensity to the ultra-precise and stony flavors that are akin to rolling small rocks around in the mouth, all wrapped in a saline and kaleidoscopically complex finish that reminds me a great deal of a grand cru Chablis with its compact and linear finish. This is breathtakingly good though note well that it’s going to require a long snooze in a cool cellar as this is nowhere near ready and I very much doubt that it will be young. 2028+

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, September 2015
Bright yellow. Musky yellow peach, grilled nuts and flinty minerality on the nose. Plush, silky and rich; in fact, downright voluptuous for the year, but with terrific mineral energy to its ripe stone fruit flavors... Bright yellow. Musky yellow peach, grilled nuts and flinty minerality on the nose. Plush, silky and rich; in fact, downright voluptuous for the year, but with terrific mineral energy to its ripe stone fruit flavors. Finishes tactile and long, with excellent verve. This outstanding wine will reward aging but there's nothing hard about it even today.

Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru has a powerful but controlled bouquet with scents of dried honey, brioche and orange blossom, a touch of mineralité tucked just behind. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, lively in the mouth with very impressive weight, retaining superb delineation and focus on the gunflint finish that has more to give, and it will with 4-5 years in bottle. This is sophisticated and entrancing. Tasted May 2016. - Neal Martin
