Bouchard Père Fils & Chevalier-Montrachet 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Chevalier-Montrachet Legend has it that the name of this white "cru" comes from the sharing out of the land by the Seigneur de Montrachet between his two sons : one had become a knight stet fighting the enemy during the crusades, and the other, illegitimate, is supposed to have given his name to Bâtard-Montrachet, situated just below Montrachet. Chevalier-Montrachet forms a horizontal strip at the top of Montrachet and, in fact, its soil was often used to make up that of Montrachet. Since the 18th century, the growers have toiled over this harsh land with its stones of chalk and marl at the top, and ordinary chalk at the bottom which produces wines of unparalleled quality. During the 19TH century the Bouchard family was quick to acquire several pieces of land in Chevalier-Montrachet and is now the biggest grower with 2.56 hectares representing 34% of the total area. Thus, Bouchard Père & Fils is one of the rare, privileged owners of part of this magnificent vineyard. With a magnificent bright gold colour, Chevalier-Montrachet is the essence of finesse, refinement and delicacy.
