Solid example of the GC but to be honest I've never really been impressed with Chartron, they tick a few boxes, but when it comes to a wine that moves you, this isn't the producer I would talk about, mediocrity is a harsh word, but it's what I've found so often, considering the price...

I don’t know if this is what Ramonet gets for their Chevy in trade for Batard but it certainly didn’t have the Ramonet mint/menthol. A lean balanced very clean rendition, lemon and other citrus, great texture and finesse, not real powerful but very persistent and enjoyable. Very light on its feet, it has a litheness I love about Chevalier.

Same as the Ramonet: I need to retaste. This followed an onslaught of northern rhones, barolos, and brunellos. My palate was already fatigued. I did pick up on it’s expansive mineralality and acidity. Only complaint was it seemed closed off and the oak was poking through.

Refined and tight aromas minty vanilla. A faint light caramel on a beautiful light fruit with a nice bright acidity and excellent finish. Really, really good stuff. Rated it so much higher this time around, I wonder how much is the effect of what I tasted before.

Smells like a fresh mild white cheese. Smooth, green fruits, prominent acidity and tiny bit of nuttiness.

bought this because they trade it to Ramonet for Batard and Ramonet Chevy is now too expensive. Very young and tight, lean wine hard to assess. Retry in 5.
