Chevalier Montrachet les Demoiselles (0.75 L)
BH: This hasn’t budged much from my initial review in early 2007 as there is still discreet wood framing a reserved yet ultra elegant white flower and intensely mineral nose that merges seamlessly into fine, precise and vividly stony flavors that culminate in a clean, crisp and bone dry finish that displays spectacular length. This has all of the superb intensity of a young Demoiselles and is clearly built to age and as such should provide at least 9 to 10 years of upside development. One thing that has become more apparent with a few years of bottle age is how concentrated this is as the amount of dry extract present is genuinely impressive and 2005 is in my view the most powerful vintage of this wine in some time. Note that I have also added two years to the expected maturity estimate as this is evolving quite slowly.
