Chevalier Montrachet La Cabotte Bouchard Pere et Fils 2015 (3L)
93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru comes from their 0.2 hectares of vine. Comparing it directly with the regular Chevalier-Montrachet, it feels more nuanced at first, but then repays aeration and offers gorgeous praline and even subtle marzipan scents seamlessly integrated with the citrus fruit. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, more cohesive and harmonious than the regular Chevalier, with superb tension and nervosité on the finish considering the growing season. This is an exquisite white Burgundy 2015 that should represent one of the very few with ageing potential." 12/16
91-94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Pale color. More closed on the nose than the "regular" Chevalier-Montrachet, with a metallic minerality that calls to mind a dry Riesling. Then very rich, classically dry and youthfully unyielding on the palate, with apple, pear, citrus and dusty stone flavors framed and lifted by terrific acidity. Much less fleshy today than the first Chevalier but equally sappy, and best right now on the slowly building, rising finish. This gripping wine shows no obvious heat despite its 13.8% alcohol." 09/16
94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "As is typically the case, this is slightly riper than the regular cuvée though the nose is moderately reduced today and harder to read. There is excellent richness here too but also relatively good detail to the big, powerful and broad-shouldered flavors that possess terrific intensity on the explosive and hugely long finish. This wine has a tendency to more resemble either Chevalier or Montrachet depending on the vintage and I would observe that in 2015 it's more the latter than the former. I would add that while this will certainly easily be capable of aging for 10 to 15 years, it will be more approachable young than usual." 6/17
94 Points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Fresh but very ripe fruit, some honeysuckle. One of the ripe fruit examples but the structure of the wine retains balance and the persistence is good. Actually a very attractive long finish. DIAM 10." 9/18
