Robert Parker 95
Revisited in bottle, Bouchard’s 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte Grand Cru has turned out beautifully, mingling aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, fresh peach, citrus oil, honeycomb and buttered toastâ€”much as it did a year ago. Full-bodied, satiny and incisive, its textural attack segues into an ample, youthfully tightly wound mid-palate girdled by racy acids and underpinned by chalky structuring extract.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2060
Deep, spicy and flinty, with a richness of stone fruit and plenty of palate weight. Powerful finish reverberates. Definitively grand cru. (TJ)
