Lot #265. Domaine d'Auvenay Chevalier-Montrachet 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 AM.
"A hint of wood spice frames ultra refined, utterly captivating and completely seductive aromas of such purity and intensity that it is hard to believe. A nose of white flowers, limestone and dried herbs overlay astoundingly focused, linear, satiny, intense and detailed flavors underpinned by crystalline minerality and a pungent finish that goes on for minutes. Understated but stunning in every respect, I was knocked out by the unbelievable harmony and this gives the impression of having been cut from a block of limestone. A great Chevalier of mind-boggling depth." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Jul 2003
Provenance: The Besançon Cellar
