Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92-94 points

The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chenevottes comes from two 50- and 60+-year-old parcels owned by the Moreau family. Alec explained that he usually picks this during the first day of the harvest as he wants to avoid heaviness in this fast-maturing vineyard. It has a clean and pure fresh melon, citrus peel and limestone-scented bouquet that offers hints of apricot with continued aeration. The palate is clean and fresh with more weight in the mouth than "les Vergers" however, there is no blowsiness here and the acidity keep things tight. It gradually builds to an orange-sorbet tinged, quite peppery finish that leaves a pleasant tingle on the tongue. It begs the question: what more do you want from a Chassagne-Montrachet?
