Chevalier Montrachet, Grand Cru

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Chevalier-Montrachet

Based entirely in the Puligny-Montrachet commune Chevalier-Montrachet is a 7 hectare Grand Cru lying directly above Montrachet. A steeper, stonier and chalkier vineyard than Montrachet that gives less rich wines. However after Le Montrachet, the wines of Chevalier are usually the next most sought after of the white Grand Cru. The wines have a disticnt taut, mineral character thanks to the poor stony soil, aswell as the requisite length and depth for a Grand Cru quality wine.
