2006 Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru from Burgundy.

The 2006 Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru shows a pale gold colour with green highlights. The bouquet of this great Burgundy white wine from Bouchard Père & Fils is distinguished with floral notes enhanced by a hint of spices. The palate is complexample and very elegant

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Mint, talcum, marzipan, and candied lemon dominate the penetratingly high-toned aromas of their 2006 Chevalier-Montrachet, which exhibits a remarkable alliance of textural richness and citric brightness, and a finish of fascinating, low-toned, chalk, stone, citrus zest, and nut oils. For all of the sheer ripeness on display here, there is no sense of superficial sweetness, with fresh lime saturating a palate of formidable density and imposingly ripe pit fruits. And for all of this wine's more than 14% alcohol, there is barely a hint of warmth. It exhibits to an even greater degree than the corresponding Meursault Perrieres a nearly ineffable, for lack of a better word mineral character, as well as an uncanny combination of amplitude and elegance; sheer mass yet vivacity. This memorably long beauty should age well for at least a dozen years.
