Domaine Leflaive Chevalier Montrachet 2015
|Appellation||Cote de Beaune|
Wine SpectatorOffers a broad mouthful of peach, apple and melon flavors, underscored by lively acidity. Has power and weight, with a mouthwatering finish that goes on for a minute or more. Really expansive on the finish, where citrus and mineral notes reign. Best from 2020 through 2033. 71 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is clearly more complex and pixelated on the nose compared to the BÃ¢tard-Montrachet: cold wet limestone, gun flint and with continued aeration a touch of orange blossom. The palate is vibrant on the entry, shimmers with citrus fruit, sea salt and spice, building with conviction towards what feels like a structured finish that has a sign saying "Long Term" around it in large letters. What a regal, or perhaps one should say, "knightly" wine.
