    Chevalier Montrachet 1999
    Domaine Leflaive
    owc
    Bottle (6)
    "Very pale gold. Very sulphidey yet rich. Tight and quite lean but with great structure and style. Pure fruit. Dry finish. Super savoury. Very fine. Fine boned, not especially full bodied but very pure and very Chevalier." (18.5pts JR, Dec 2006)

    "Almost always my favorite wine chez Leflaive and so it is again in '99. The '99 Chevy is now beginning to open fully to reveal an impressively detailed nose of citrus and wet stones followed by vivid, palate staining flavors of limestone, pear and spicy oak. This has a curiously silky yet surprisingly powerful and muscular palate impression and a racy intensity that just oozes class topped off by a finish that goes on and on. Drop dead gorgeous and fans of this wine will not want to miss it. As to maturity, this has arrived at the stage where it could be drunk with pleasure or continue to be held though for my taste, it has arrived at the front end of its peak maturity." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan. 2010)
