The 2011 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru has an understated bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass, but with a little encouragement it gives up lovely nectarine and white peach scents. Still, the aromatics give out the message that it needs three or four years in bottle. The palate is very precise and wonderfully balanced, perfectly judged acidity and extremely well-focused. It has a vibrant, sorbet-fresh finish that simply dances about the mouth with merry abandon. This is exquisite and encapsulates everything a Chevalier-Montrachet should be.

Tasting note: This is also quite restrained though aggressive swirling liberates ultra-elegant aromas of citrus, mineral reduction, anise, clove, pear and green apple. There is a notably finer texture to the gorgeously intense middle weight plus flavors that seem to be extracted directly from liquid rock, all wrapped in a bone dry, overtly austere and massively lengthy finish. This is also borderline painfully intense and the austerity is such that I would not advise opening one of these beauties young as much too much potential upside would be wasted.
