The medium weight plus flavours are surprisingly ripe, both in the context of the 2014 vintage but also for what is typical for the appellation, yet even so there is excellent verve along with the hallmark minerality underpinning the superbly long and even more complex finale. This beauty of a Chevalier should age effortlessly for years if desired. 93-95 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.
Their colour is gold flecked with emerald, darkening towards yellow with age. Their bouquet evokes butter and warm croissants, bracken, dried fruit, spices and honey. Body and bouquet are not separately distinguishable, so closely blended are structure and harmony into a single perfect whole. Unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, enveloped and profound, these wines combine every virtue in a firmly-established personality.
