Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2014 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru takes a few swirls of the glass to really get going, eventually developing subtle peardrop and nectarine notes that patiently wait behind the stony veneer. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity, brisk and lively, hints of peach and pineapple coming through on the seductive and flattering finish that has plenty of roundness. This is just gorgeous, but it needs several years in the cellar. - Neil Martin, Dez. 2015
Allen Meadows' Burghound: An airy, cool and quite pure nose evidences the mineral reduction nuances that one typically finds in a fine Chevalier along with citrus, spice, essence of pear and dried floral aromas that are trimmed in soft wood. The wonderfully refined, textured and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors seem to be extracted directly from liquid rock before culminating in a chiseled, lemony and cuts-like-a-knife delineated finish that delivers superb length. As the best examples of Chevalier seem to always do this elegant effort combines finesse with power and class. - Allen Meadows, Jun. 2016
Vinous: (from vines in the high part of cru): Very pale, bright yellow. Lemon zest, crushed stone, white flowers, lavender and sea salt on the nose; smells taut. Densely packed and almost painfully intense, with the flavors of citrus fruits, ripe grapefruit and crushed stone conveying a tactile impression of dry extract. Elegant and sweet (about 2 g/l r.s.), and the lowest in acidity of these 2014s at 3.6 grams per liter, and thus this wine does not come off as austere. Boudot suggests drinking it young for its fresh fruit or waiting six or seven years. - Stephen Tanzer, Sep. 2015
Viel zarter, cremiger als der Bâtard, Blütenaromen, Birne, am Gaumen höchste Eleganz, Süße, reichlich verführerische Frucht und genügend Fülle. Einzigartig, ein Bilderbuch-Grand-Cru.
