    April 27, 2019 - Bottle in very good condition. Complex nose with mature aromas of apple, cinnamon, lemon but also nutty and bee wax components. Creamy on the palate with very good freshness still. Excellent length. One wishes that all Leflaive would age like this.

    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.

Burgundy-Report

    (Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet) Not so much full-on oak on the nose as many grand crus from Leflaive, but plenty of toasty bread, tight fruit and eventually higher alcoholic notes. In the mouth my first impression is disappointment; soft, rather unfocused but good acidity. The wine then wakes a little with an impressive burst of complexity on the mid-palate that holds into a long - if rather oak driven - finish. It’s long and has some undoubted complexity but maybe I’ve caught it on a bad day as there’s no real focus or spark.
