Winemaker Notes

Chevalier Montrachet is an ethereal beverage, in depth complexity and ageability. Because its soils are leaner with less clay, Chevalier tends to possess more minerality when young, occasionally seeming somewhat austere. Patience is rewarded when after 10 to 15 years it blossoms into a perfect balance of pear-apple compote, truffled honey, and wet stones combined with a forest floor, wild mushroom aroma.

Serve chilled and allow to come to room temperature. Noble white fishes, such as John Dory, Dover Sole, and halibut make fine partners, as do chicken and veal, especially when accompanied by refined sauces of wild mushrooms.

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator
Very ripe and opulent in aroma, this starts out flamboyant, settling down as the racy acidity kicks in and an intense mineral, dried citrus and stone fruit flavors blossom. There's plenty of new oak, yet it's completely absorbed by the fruit and sense of terroir. Best from 2007 through 2020.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The spiced oak and mineral-scented 2002 Chevalier-Montrachet is a prodigiously concentrated wine. This focused, sappy wine is fleshy, studded with spiced minerals and reveals a lengthy, resin-flavored finish.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
