    August 22, 2020 - This showed great intensity and acidity at first and it clearly seemed the better of the two vintages (2000) but that did change with air as this became a bit too taut and strict. Right out of the bottle though, this had lovely cut and sweet yellow fruits but it somehow began to go sideways in the late innings. 92-

    June 30, 2019 - Damn really wish I had more of this. Lemon curd aromatics. Intense, balanced, sweet and mellow palate with length.

    March 6, 2019 - The Chevalier's (00 and 01) were in perfect shape, and drank well. Both benefited mightily from their decant, and from a few hours of glass time. I slightly preferred the 00, but both were terrific.

    November 9, 2018 - Out of Mag. Opened an hour before serving. Nothing like the Mag I opened last. This was open , vibrant and delicious.Great minerality and balance. White flowers on the bouquet. Nitpicking a bit the back palate was a a bit thin but the wine had great length. With time the back palate rounded out a bit and I think age will shore it up. 96/97

    October 28, 2018 - Medium yellow in color. This is noticeably darker than the 97 but not in a premox way. In fact no hint of premox and it could use more time to integrate the oak.

    Again, this is a big rich and powerful Leflaive Chevalier and doesn’t seem to have evolved much since my last experience with this 1 year ago.

    Preferred by most over the 97 tonight. A great wine still in evolution.
