Bernard Moreau Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet 2018
The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, which comprises three barrels this year, has an expressive bouquet of crushed stone mixed with Granny Smith apples and fleeting hints of white peach. The palate is supremely well balanced, delivering superb weight and penetration; the intense flavors of orange peel and sour lemon dovetail into discreet passion fruit and pawpaw notes toward the finish. Of course, there is outstanding mineralité throughout this Grand Cru. An awesome Chevalier-Montrachet. 2024-2050
Vinous – Neal Martin
An elegant, pure and airy if mildly exotic nose combines notes of passion fruit, apple, white flowers and mineral reduction. There is excellent intensity to the racy medium-bodied flavors that possess a borderline creamy mid-palate while exuding an overt minerality on the balanced, hugely, long, tightly wound and ever-so-mildly austere finale. /2030+

Wafting from the glass with a lovely bouquet of citrus oil, orange blossom, white flowers and pastry cream, Moreau's 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a deep and multidimensional core, lively acids and a long, chalky finish. Whereas the Bâtard is purchased as grapes, Alex Moreau received the Chevalier in must, and he's done a terrific job of the vinification and élevage.
