Description

    Chevalier Montrachet 2008
    Domaine Leflaive
    Bottle (5)


    "Even after 5 years the nose remains restrained but exceptionally elegant and pure with aromas of white flower, green apple, pear and wet stone. There is plenty of minerality to the rich, full and highly energetic flavors that tighten up considerably on the detailed, minerally and moderately dry finish that displays distinct citrus and mineral nuances. This is still quite tight and linear with huge amounts of dry extract that renders the very firm acid spine almost invisible at present though the hugely finish is clearly shaped by it. This magnificent Chevalier should be a genuine stunner in 10 to 12 years." (97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Mar. 2013)

    "Like the B√Ętard, here the nose is quite restrained but exceptionally elegant and pure with white flower, green apple, pear and wet stone where the latter element continues onto the rich, full and highly energetic flavors that tighten up considerably on the detailed, minerally and bone dry finish that displays distinct citrus mineral nuances. This is long, tight and linear with huge amounts of dry extract that renders the very firm acid spine almost invisible at present though the finish is clearly shaped by it. This magnificent Chevalier should be a genuine stunner in 12 to 15 years." (97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #43, Feb. 2011)
