John Gilman: 93 Points

 I fell in love with the early appeal of Chenevottes all the way back in the 1992 vintage, with the wines of Domaine Colin-Deleger, and the memory of that beautiful ’92 came right back to me the moment I put my nose in the glass of this stunning 2014. The bouquet is utterly classic in its beautiful blend of apple, pear, acacia blossom, gorgeous chalky soil tones, orange zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off superb mid-palate depth, with bouncy acids, great focus and grip and fine complexity on the very long, vibrant and utterly seamless finish. Chenevottes simply does not get any better than this! (Drink between 2016-2035)

"The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Chenevottes has a precise limestone and green apple-scented bouquet a hint of orange blossom developing in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry. I like the texture here the slight waxiness to the mouthfeel with a feisty and lively finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is the kind of Chenevottes you could drink until the cows come home." -Neal Martin

Burghound: 90-92 Points

"Here the Pear William and floral-suffused nose is somewhat phenolic in character (think olive oil nuances) though it may not last as this character often dissipates with more time in barrel. There is outstanding richness to the full-bodied and relatively powerful flavors that coat the palate with sap all wrapped in a lingering complex and balanced finish where a touch of wood appears. My sense is that this will harmonize in time."

ale straw, more fruit than oak. Medium depth of fruit here on the palate, good acidity, the oak is well integrated. Still shows a youthful edge.
