- 95+ Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, William Kelley: "The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is immensely promising, unfurling in the glass with an appropriately reserved nose of lemon oil, candle wax, white currants, toasted bread and dried spring flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and layered with a satiny attack, excellent concentration at the core and a long, expansive finish. This must number among the best kept secrets in grand cru white Burgundy, and I encourage readers to seek it out."
- 95 Punkte WINESPECTATOR, Bruce Sanderson: "Toasted brioche, baking spice and butterscotch aromas and flavors surround the core of peach, golden apple and hazelnut in this extroverted white. There's plenty going on, including excellent harmony and a vibrant structure that will support this for years. Best from 2021 through 2029. 150 cases made."
- 92-94 Punkte VINOUS, Stephen Tanzer: "(aging in 50% new oak and 50% once-used barrels): Bright yellow. Aromas of yellow fruits, white flowers, marzipan and minerals are complicated by a sexy leesy quality and some sweet oak notes. Very rich, thick wine with terrific concentration and ripe acidity; flavors of yellow fruits, flowers, spices, crushed rock and hazelnut spread out to saturate the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Finishes tactile and unflagging but at the same time subtle and quite suave, without any of the youthful aggressiveness shown by the Demoiselles."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Vineyards: Chevalier-Montrachet is one of the five grand cru sites on the border of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. Shallow, well-drained soils of limestone and calcareous clay on very sloping inclines impart a delicacy to the wines grown here. The average age of the vines, which are trained in the Single Guyot method, is approximately 50 years, ranging from 37 to 60 years old. Tasting notes: Stunning aromas of butterscotch and caramel seduce the senses guiding to a tightly wound, yet explosive, fine-tuned palate that exudes elegance and is reminiscent of the limestone terroir that the grapes stem from. Preserved lemons, marzipan, pears and honey notes flood the perfectly balanced, complex mouth feel. Luxurious and intense, this powerful bottling leaves a lasting impression in the seemingly endless, textured finish. To be served at 10-12°C. Ageing potential: 6-15 years.|
