The 2016 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Demoiselles was reduced from the usual nine or ten barrels to just two this year because of frost damage. It has higher-toned fruit compared to the Montrachet at the moment: orange blossom, white peach, white flowers and a subtle cold stone scent that becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is tensile on the entry with very fine focus. There is a pleasant saline note that becomes pronounced on the second half, spicier than I recall the 2015 being last year, with impressive persistence. Excellent.
