(from a 2.54 ha parcel including La Cabotte). An elegant, ripe and airy blend is composed by notes of citrus, floral, white orchard fruit and a whiff of mineral reduction. The sleeker if less muscular big-bodied flavors possess exceptionally good complexity on the sappy, lingering and stony finale that is a bit less structured than the CortonCharlemagne. Classy and impressive and this is a Chevalier that should drink reasonably well young if that’s your preference. 94/2026+
