    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Grand Cru is produced in limited quantities, and sometimes equals or surpasses the great Chardonnay Grand Cru Le Montrachet in its concentration and complexity. It offers a profound fragrance of toast, honey and white fruit. It is full-bodied and powerful, with a long finish. Made to age, this wine will develop in the bottle for 15 to 20 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles is utterly seamless. As inviting as the Chevalier is today, it is also very, very young and years away from offering its finest drinking. White flowers, pears and slate inform the taut, energetic finish. The personality of the vintage comes through, but there is more than enough buffering acidity to balance the overtness of the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.

    The Wine Advocate

    A background note of wood mixes with ripe citrus and airy white flower aromas that are liberally sprinkled with wet stone notes that continue onto the rich, fleshy and mouth coating large-bodied and dense flavors that also brim with a fine minerality on the explosive finish. Like a number of wines in the range, 2009 is not the most elegant of vintages for this storied wine but it is most impressive all the same.

    Pale straw-yellow color. Utterly captivating nose combines white plum, anisette, crushed stone, medicinal herbs, fresh hazelnut, almond, marzipan and white pepper. Powerful, dense and seamless, with terrific fruit intensity and violet lift. Beautifully balanced, suave, rich Chevalier-Montrachet with with a very long, mounting finish. Lardiere prefers this wine to the 2008 and believes it will age for a long time.
