Chevalier-Montrachet is a great vineyard, perhaps only surpassed by Montrachet in the white classifications.
Chevalier-Montrachet is only located in the Puligny-Montrachet appellation, but have been expanded a couple of times over the years, as parts of Les Demoiselles and Les Caillerets have been promoted to grand cru status and included in the northern end of Chevalier-Montrachet.
This have not always been without controvercy, but in the end Chevalier have been expanded with some great plots.
