From barrel, the Prieur 2007 Chevalier-Montrachet is prominently citric, saline, and chalky for a young wine from this great site, with its orchard fruit aspects closely shadowed by the bitterness of fruit pits. Yet for all of its brightness, this is absolutely sumptuous in texture, with a creaminess and polish that somehow do not engender any sense of bifurcation, although the corseting of wood is quite obvious. This stains the palate with zesty citrus oil, pear skin, piquant nuttiness, chalk dust, and brine. Some of the sheer concentration on exhibit here probably traces to an April hail that took out half the crop. This formidable wine could do with a bit more charm and intrigue, which may well come, and it will certainly bear repeated visits - for any lucky and wealthy enough to afford them - over at least the next 6-8 years.
