This is a beautiful wine with elegant fruits that reflect a strong sense of minerality. It is crisp, although that is just a surface quality to a wine that has such depth. Toast flavors round out the intense fruits, giving a light spice and butter to this powerful wine. Drink from 2020. (10/2015)

The 2013 Chevalier-Montrachet “Les Demoiselles” Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with mint-infused citrus fruit, tinned peach, hints of jasmine and dried quince following with continued aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a fine citric edge on the entry. There is a wonderful, almost thrilling sense of focus and intent here as the Chevalier-Montrachet builds in the mouth toward a roiling, spicy finish (imagine a few Gewurztraminer vines sneaking into the midst!) This is a superb 2013 and it should age with panache. Like last year, I sectioned off two morning sessions to taste through the complete range of Louis Jadot’s Côte d’Or wines. That’s over 100 wines and so I prefer to not rush, spend my time diligently tasting and comparing each one in the presence of winemaker Frédéric Barnier and then on the second morning accompanied by proprietor Pierre-Henry Gagey, fresh from a ten-day fasting in Germany and positively bounding with positivity. With such a plethora of vineyards under their wing, both owned and rented, both gentlemen have a birds-eye view of how Burgundy performed in the vintage. (12/2014)
