Louis Jadot Chevalier Montrachet 'Les Demoiselles' 2014
WA 97: The 2014 Chevalier Montrachet les Demoiselles Grand Cru has a very precise, mineral-rich bouquet with cold granite and flinty scents, hints of white peach and almond just in the background. This is very classy. The palate is very poised and intense, just a faint touch of bitter lemon imparting tension from start to finish with healthy salinity on the long, long finish. This is surely Jadot's best white in 2014? It is magnificent.
WS 97: Plenty of ground coffee, toast and vanilla aromas announce this white, while flavors of peach, lemon and apple follow through. Young and a little disjointed, but all the parts are there. Finishes long and satisfying. Best from 2019 through 2032.
BH 96: Somewhat surprisingly this is the most expressive among the 2014 Jadot grands crus with its cool, pure and decidedly airy nose that combines notes of various white orchard fruit with those of spice, soft wood, floral and tea-like aromas. The wonderfully sleek and refined medium weight plus flavors possess much more minerality on the hugely long and well-balanced finish that seems to just go on and on. It can't quite match the sheer scale and complexity of the Montrachet but the mouth feel is even finer. In short, this is seriously good. Barrel Sample: 93-96
