Henri Boillot Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 2016



(Boillot noted that Chevalier was the only grand cru that didn’t freeze in 2016). Like several wines in the range there is a subtle whiff of the exotic in the form of mandarin orange to the acacia blossom, green fruit and mineral reduction-suffused aromas. The dense, serious and powerful broad-shouldered flavors flash plenty of minerality on the chiseled, even crystalline finish that delivers huge length. This tautly muscular effort is seriously good though patience will of course be necessary. 96/2028+ .
