Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2002

Bouchard Chevalier Montrachet #1

Primrose with a touch of emerald.  No longer the reductive, white-hot mass of terroir of its younger days.  It’s harnessing its energies now, emerging more articulate, beneficent.   It’s still penetrating and intricate, a slowly-building sonata of citrus, iodine, stone, white flower, ethereal in its nuance and detail.  Fervent, mineralic finish; it pounds like a midnight heart.  Chevalier is truth and this is true Chevalier, all blades of beauty.  Will still improve.  Now – 2025+.
